Sorry to post such a beginner's question here, but I am having some serious trouble getting the hang of commands. I have defined a function as g[x_] = 8 x^2 Sin^2 [6 x], with the output shown as 8 x^2 Sin^2[6 x] (To me this appears correct). However, I have tried to then plot that function from 0, Pi with the following input: Plot[g[x], {x, 0, Pi}] (using the symbol within the program for Pi). When I execte the command - I get a graph with X-coordinates from 0-Pi with Y coordinates of -1 to 1, with no actual plot. The weird part is the first time I executed the command it showed up. I re-exected the initial function after deleting some further commands that I no longer needed, and then tried to re-execute the graph, and now no matter what I do I cannot get it to show up. Can anybody help me out?
