I'm trying to graph the inequality x > 5, but without a y, how can I
graph it?
 Graph of Circle as a Function [05/30/1998]

The graph of a circle is not a function because it fails the vertical
line test. How could you make it a function?
 The Graph of f [7/3/1996]

Where are its local and absolute maxima and minima? What are the x
intercepts of the graph of f?...
 Graph of y = arcsin x [03/31/2003]

that?
 Graph the Ellipse... [01/01/1998]

[((x1)^2)/2^2] + [((y2)^2)/2^2] = 1. Graph the ellipse and find the
major and minor axes, the foci, the eccentricity, and the center.

 Is It Really Possible to Draw a Graph? [02/01/2007]

Since graphs are collections of points, and points have no dimensions
(depth, length, height), we can't really draw a graph. All we can do
is make a "representative graph". Is that right?
