Mathematica makes a guess as to the "sensible" range to plot thereby avoiding attempts to plot functions with infinite range or worse. The optoin PlotRange allows you to take full control: Plot[Exp[x], {x, -10, 2}, PlotRange -> All] Hope this helps... --David A WorkLife FrameWork E x t e n d i n g MATHEMATICA's Reach... http://scientificarts.com/worklife/ On Nov 5, 5:16 am, "Bert Aerts (rm x)" <bert.aer... at advalvasx.be> wrote: > When I type the following in Mathematica 6.0.1 Linux x86_64 version > Plot[Exp[x], {x, -10, 2}] > I get a plot to y-axis value 2.2 in stead of Exp[2]=7.4 > Why are the plot boundaries not respected?
