**Graphing with the Graphing Calculator** Determine an appropriate viewing rectangle for the equation, and use it to draw the graph.

To determine

The appropriate viewing rectangle for the equation

Explanation

**Given:**

The given equation is,

**Approach:**

The graph of the equation using graphing calculator in the given rectangular view is construct on the basis of the following steps:

Step 1: Press the key

Figure

Step 2: Press the key

Figure

Step 3: Press the key

Figure

**Calculation:**

Let us try different viewing rectangle for the equation

Case (a): let the viewing rectangle be

Write the given equation in the graphing calculator,

Start with the viewing rectangle

Set,

The result graph is as shown below,

Figure

The resulting graph is not so clear, only some part of the graph is visible. So this rectangular view is also not appropriate.

Case (b): let the viewing rectangle be

Write the given equation in the graphing calculator,

Start with the viewing rectangle

Set,

The result graph is as shown below,
