: in algebra 2 last year, we didn't use these on our graphing calculator ( i have a ti-83 plus). now, we're supposed to look at a data chart and decide, from the numbers in it, what xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax, yscl, and xscl should be.
: for example: month clsoing price
: jan 1995 29 11/16 (29.6875
:
: goes to dec 1995

: it's like that. how would you determine the xmin, etc? any help would be extremely appreciated. if not, i think i will have to drop the class.

:Plot months on the x-axix and stock price on the y-axis. Since the first month is Jan, set xmin=1. The last month is Dec so xmax=12. You want tick marks every month so xscl=1. Set ymax=to the highest stock price and ymin=lowest stock price. Set yscl=(ymax-ymin)/10. You can adjust these to get a better plot.

:You set these values by pressing the Window key and then scrolling to the appropriate value.
