Graphical Representation of a Function

The function f : R - {0} → R is represented in the graph such that the x co-ordinate represents the independent variable and the y co-ordinate represents the dependent variable. The graph of the function shows various properties of the function directly and more clearly. The limiting case of the graph of the function is represented by an asymptote:

                                               asymptote

Asymptote is a straight line to which graph of the function approaches at infinity but does not exactly touch it as shown in figure shown above.

  Coordinate axis x = 0 is asymptotes to the graph of y ­­= 1/x.

We consider some examples of functions and their graphs
