Can you create the following graph using desmos.com or some other graphing tool? If you’re victorious, leave us a note in the comments when you’re done.

Are parametric equations allowed?

We haven’t discussed that yet. At the very least, no parametric equations are required for Daily Desmos 4a. (The guidelines may offer a hint…)

This is as close as I can get: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/fqwg2b7dtq

Are the vertical lines a rendering relic or actually part of the solution set of the curve?

(also: my vote is for: beautiful)

You know, now that I think about it, the vertical lines must be a “rendering relic” since I used a product (hint!) of two functions. The result must also be a function. Oops.

I was just so enamored by the visual that I didn’t think too closely about how the values were generated (until now).

Really nice graph. Clever use of the rounding functions.

Lol. I think I got it. https://www.desmos.com/calculator/sgndyn3m4q
