# Equation Grapher

Enter an Equation using the variables x and/or y and an =, press Go:

(Note: there is also the Flash Version.)

## Description

It can plot an equation where x and y are **related somehow** (not just y=...), like these:

### Examples:

**x^2+y^2=9**(an equation of a circle with a radius of 3)**sin(x)+cos(y)=0.5****2x-3y=1****cos(x^2)=y****(x-3)(x+3)=y^2****y=x^2**

If you don't include an equals sign, it will assume you mean "**=0**"

It has not been well tested, so **have fun** with it, but **don't trust it**.

If it gives you problems, let me know.

Note: it may take a few seconds to finish, because it has to do lots of calculations.

If you just want to graph a function in "y=..." style you may prefer Function Grapher and Calculator

## Zooming

Use the zoom slider (to the left zooms in, to the rigth zooms out).

To reset the zoom to the original bounds click on the **Reset** button.

## Dragging

Click-and-drag to move the graph around. If you just click-and-release (without dragging), then the spot you clicked on will be the new center

Note: the plots use **computer calculations**. Round-off can cause errors or values can be missed completely.
