**III. Working With A Graph**

E. TABLEThe TABLE function is more versatile than TRACE in evaluating a function because you are not restricted to any range of values.

Example 1: Graph the function shown below and then use TABLE to evaluate the function.

Enter the function. Graph with ZDECM. Evaluate with the

TABLE .One valuable use of TABLE is to examine the behavior of a function right around certain values, or to look at extremely large values of x. This is useful in both algebra and calculus when analyzing the behavior of functions around vertical and horizontal asymptotes.

Example 2: Look at values of the function very close to x=2, and then look at values of x as it increases in value.

Enter the

function. Graph with

ZDECM. Evaluate close

to x=2. Evaluate for

large values.Use a table to evaluate a function at values that are beyond the range of [Xmin, Xmax].
