z=x/100 if{(x<100) and y<10000}

= 1 otherwise...

  • $\begingroup$ Why would you put a constraint on $y$ if it doesn't even appear in the equation? $\endgroup$ – Jam Aug 7 '18 at 9:53
  • $\begingroup$ I understand it doesnt make sense, but let me assure you, the problem I am dealing with has that flavour. What I am trying to do is define z=1 whenever y>10000 irrespective of the value of x. $\endgroup$ – Vk1 Aug 7 '18 at 10:00
  • $\begingroup$ Right. Why would you want to plot this in WA? $\endgroup$ – Jam Aug 7 '18 at 10:06
  • $\begingroup$ I think it's pretty easy to imagine what $f(x,y)=\begin{cases}\frac{x}{100}&x<100,y<10^4\\1&\text{else}\end{cases}$ looks like. Just try it in a $3$d grapher like Geogebra. geogebra.org/3d?lang=en-GB $\endgroup$ – Jam Aug 7 '18 at 10:08
  • $\begingroup$ You should get a figure a bit like this. imgur.com/dlnYAOX $\endgroup$ – Jam Aug 7 '18 at 10:22

Use this script

ContourPlot3D[ z == If[x < 100 && y < 10000, x/100, 1], {x, -1000, 1000}, {y, 0, 10500}, {z, -10, 10}] enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ In Mathematica maybe, but it doesn't work for me in WA... (Link.) $\endgroup$ – Hans Lundmark Aug 7 '18 at 11:20
  • $\begingroup$ It doesnt seem to work in wolfram alpha, but Thanks for the image. I had trouble imagining what it looked like and now its clear. $\endgroup$ – Vk1 Aug 8 '18 at 12:56
