Can you show me which tools we can use to draw the graphs look like in this book? (see below figure). Sorry, I don't know exactly where I can post this question.

  • @JosephWright: thanks, I've used LaTeX but it's quite complicated for me to draw freely graphs like in above figure. I wonder if there are other apps to do this job? Apr 24, 2015 at 9:42
  • Ah, I have found the below answer from Robert. :) Apr 24, 2015 at 9:51
  • Welcome to TeX.SX. Questions about how to draw specific graphics that just post an image of the desired result are really not reasonable questions to ask on the site. Please post a minimal compilable document showing that you've tried to produce the image and then people will be happy to help you with any specific problems you may have. See minimal working example (MWE) for what needs to go into such a document. Apr 24, 2015 at 11:33

You can use several plotting packages, some of them very sophisticated.

My package xpicture is specially designed for mathematical plottings.

Try this code:

  \newlpoly{\p}{-5}{3}              % Defines y=-5+3x
         \PlotFunction{\p}{1.5}{3.25} % Plots p between x=1.5 and x=3.25
      \Put[SE](2,1){$\Delta x=1$}
      \Put[E](3,2.5){$\Delta y=3$}
      \Put[E](3.1,\x){$\leftarrow$ slope 3}

slope of a line
