Graphing in Mathematica

  1. May 15, 2006 #1
    If I am using the Plot3D command in Mathematica, how can I plot two separate functions on the same coordinates? Specifically, I am trying to get a picture of the intersection of [itex]x+y+z=1$[/itex] with [itex]x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2}=1[/itex].

    I suck at mathematica and probably won't help too much, but when I plot many functions or equations I do,
    string = Plot[xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, DisplayFunction -> Identity]
    string2 = Plot[xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, DisplayFunction -> Identity]
    Show[{string, string2,...}, DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction]

    It works for both plots2d and 3d in my mathematica. I dunno.

    Should work, I think...

    (Although I use Mathematica rarely - Matlab always :tongue: )
