Hi Vadim,

1. To print the function i times


It creates a list with i elements. Each element represents your desired

2. Plot the function

Scan[ Plot[ x i-i, {i,0,#}]&, Range[100]]

Range creates a table with elements 1 to 100. Scan operates the Plot
function on each of that elements. The element is inserted at the # (a so
called pure function). Careful with that x, you must replace it with a
numerical value, cause Plot won't evaluate on non-numeric expressions.

3. Find the Integral

Map[Integrate [x i-i, {x, 0, #}]&,Range[5]]

Same as above, except that Map creates a list with the result.

Have fun

Oliver Friedrich
