We will graph application functions on windows determined by the context of the applications, and we will align data so that smaller inputs can be used in models. We will also graph data points. S. personal savings rate as a percent of disposable income. If the data are aligned so that the input values (x) represent the number of years after 1960, the personal savings rate can be modeled by the function Graphs of Functions If an equation defines y as a function of x, we can sketch the graph of the function by plotting enough points to determine the shape of the graph and then drawing a line or curve through the points.
