In the figure above, let x and y be the x- and y-coordinates of A respectively.


(a) Suggest FOUR possible relations between x and y.

x y = __________
(b) (i) Choose either one of the above relations. Express it in
the form y = … in the table given. 2 4
(ii) Fill in the table the coordinates of some other points
satisfying the relation.
(iii) Plot these points in the above graph.
(iv) What do we get if we plot ALL points satisfying the
equation?

(c) The collection of ALL the points satisfying the equation on the rectangular
coordinate plane is called the graph of the equation.

(i) Draw the graph of the equation.

(ii) Suggest some points outside the range shown in the graph which:

lie on the graph;

do not lie on the graph.

Discuss how you can tell whether these points lie on the graph or not.
