    How do u plot a x2,x3 graph???

    How do u do so??? for example i have a locus equation and how do i plot it on the graph paper?? i dont know if i already miss it at school or what..

    Your question is very vague. Do you know how to use graph paper at all? What DO you know about plotting anything and/or about graph paper?

    Are you talking about "parametric equation" and have x2= g(t), x3= h(t)? And what happened to x1?

    If you have, for example, x1= f(t), x2= g(t), x3= h(t). ("x1", "x2", and "x3" are just "x", "y", and "z". "x1", "x2", and "x3" are used to match other problems where you might want to have more than 3 dimensions.) You are talking about a three dimensional graph. Calculate (x1, x2, x3) for a number of different values of t, plot those points on an "x1,x2,x3" coordinate system, then draw a curve through those points.

    Thanks HallsofIvy!

    its not that i dont know,its just that i need to refresh it as my exam is getting closer and i dont even have a flashback about the curve-ing graph or Graph Function.

    There are many different kinds of graphs and many different ways you can label the variables you are graphing. Saying "x2, x3 graph" tells us jnothing about what it is you want to know.
