I want to plot functions (using some software, any recommendations?) that looks like this below. Could someone suggest equations of functions that would look like the graph below? 123

    $\begingroup$ There are many of them: I have started to use Geogebra. $\endgroup$ – user21436 Apr 4 '12 at 14:01

    $\begingroup$ Have you tried: gnuplot (free), mathematica, matlab, ...? The functions you list could be more or less anything - how about $b(x) = (x/10)^2, h(x) = 1+b(x), g(x) = 2+b(x), f(x) = 3+b(x)$? $\endgroup$ – Johannes Kloos Apr 4 '12 at 14:09

Besides the excellent suggestions made by Johannes Kloos

Have you tried: gnuplot (free), mathematica, matlab, ...? The functions you list could be more or less anything - how about $b(x)=(x/10)^2$, $h(x)=1+b(x)$, $g(x)=2+b(x)$, $f(x)=3+b(x)$?

I'll add that fooplot is free, runs in a browser, and is very easy to use:

You can also do the plots by using MAPLE as follows:

[> with(plots):
[> b := proc (x) options operator, arrow; (1/100)*x^2 end proc:
[> multiple(plot, [b(x), x = 0 .. 10, y = 0 .. 5,color and 0 .. 5,color = red, thickness = 3], [b(x)+1, x = 0 .. 10, y = 0 .. 5, color = green, thickness = 3], [b(x)+2, x = 0 .. 10, y = 0 .. 5, color = blue, thickness = 3], [b(x)+3, x = 0 .. 10, y = 0 .. 5, color = black, thickness = 3]);
