Homework Statement
I am not sure how to graph the function
f(x)=(x+p)+q
Homework Equations
The Attempt at a Solution
When x=0 y=p+q
if y=0 x=-q-p ?
what shape would this give??[/B]
f(x) = (x + p) + q can also be written as f(x) = x + (p + q)lola2000 said:Homework Statement

siddharth23 said:f(x) = (x + p) + q can also be written as f(x) = x + (p + q)
No as p and q are both constants, let:
p + q = c
Sp, we get f(x) = x + c
This is similar to the equation y = mx + c. What does this equation stand for?
This is nothing more than a straight line whose slope is 1 and whose y-intercept is p + q.lola2000 said:f(x)=(x+p)+q
Yes!lola2000 said:So it will just be a straight line upwards with a gradient of 1 and y intercept of p+q?
The type of graph you choose will depend on the type of data you are trying to represent. For continuous data, a line graph is usually best, while for categorical data, a bar or pie chart may be more suitable. If you want to show the relationship between two variables, a scatter plot is a good choice. Consider the purpose of your graph and the type of data you have before selecting a graph type.
The scale of your graph should be chosen to accurately represent your data without distorting the information. Start by determining the range of your data and then choose a scale that allows you to clearly display this range. You can also consider using a logarithmic scale if your data has a wide range of values.
Labeling your graph is important for providing context and making it easy to interpret. Be sure to include a title that summarizes the information being presented, labels for each axis, and a legend if necessary. You may also want to include units of measurement and any important notes or explanations.
If you want to compare multiple data sets on one graph, you can use different colors or symbols to differentiate them. Be sure to include a legend so the reader can easily understand which data set corresponds to each color or symbol. You may also consider using multiple axes if the data sets have significantly different scales.
The interpretation of your graph will depend on the type of data being presented and the purpose of your graph. Look for patterns, trends, and relationships between variables. Consider the scale and labels on your graph to properly understand the data. Additionally, it is important to consider any limitations or potential sources of error in your data when interpreting your graph.
