Comments | Users note: the maximum value of n appears to be unlimited but the graphing feature fails after n=1020. The links do not take the user to any other websites. It appears that this applet needs to be updated. The version of Internet explorer recommended for Window users is version 4 (no mention to Firefox). The lines for the graph will often go above the actual curve, which takes away from graphical presentation. |
