When constructing the graphs of some functions, one of the variables changes much more rapidly than the other. We saw this in graphing the exponential and logarithmic functions in Sections 13.1 and 13.2. The following example illustrates this point.
Plot the graph of
Constructing the following table of values,
we then plot these values as shown in Fig. 13.21(a).
We see that as x changes from ...
