Unformatted text preview: y 1 = x 7 7 x 6 + 21 x 5 35 x 4 + 35 x 3 21 x 2 + 7 x 1 y 2 = (x 1 ) 7 The two expressions are mathematically equivalent because the Frst is the binomial expansion of the second, but behave very differently numerically for the above case where x is almost equal to one, and the values of the expressions should be (and are) almost zero. Plot y 1 versus x . Then, using the same vertical scales as the previous graph, plot y 2 versus x . or both plots, use the function axis to simultaneously set the x-axis limit to be the interval 0 . 988 x 1 . 012 and the y-axis limit, the interval min (y 1 ) y max (y 1 ) . inally, plot both y 1 and y 2 together on the same graph using different line colors.
