This morning every time I try to add a graph my browser hangs (both IE and Firefox). Is anyone else having this problem?

Found a way to bypass the problem.


Until the problem with the graph utility is solve, I propose a manual solution.

The graph utility is just an interface for a function graph that takes in the following parameters

  • f(x)
  • the range of the #x#-axis;
  • the range of the #y#-axis

So, if you want to graph #f(x) = 2x+3#, write - I added two quote marks, "", between the graph function and the parameters to avoid the function from actually drawing the graph

  • with my ""

graph""{2x+3 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

  • without my ""

graph{2x+3 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

So remember, there is no space between "graph" and "{".

Here's how that breaks down

#underbrace("graph")_(color(blue)("the name of the function")){ f(x) [overbrace(-10, 10)^(color(green)(x"-axis range")), overbrace(-5, 5)^color(red)(y"-axis range")]}#

So, for example, if I want to graph #f(x) = x^2 + 3#, I can write

  • with my ""

graph""{x^2+3[-10, 10, -5, 5]}

  • without my ""

graph{x^2+3[-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Maybe you've noticed, but the default range for the #x#-acis is set at [-10, 10], and for the #y#-axis at [-5, 5]. This means that I can tweak the graph to show

  • with my ""

graph""{x^2+3[-10, 10, -2, 10]}

  • without my ""

graph{x^2+3[-10, 10, -2, 10]}

Now, as you would imagine, I will no longer use the graph utility, this way is much cooler :D
