How to plot a set of data vs a function?

Postby Cyb3rGlitch » Sun Oct 16, 2011 5:53 am
This is what I'm trying to achieve:

plot {10, 40, 160, 225, 320, 640, 1280}, y = 24x^2 - 102

But WolframAlpha can't interpret it. Is there a way to do this, such that I can see the data points and the function plotted on the same graph? Or even next to each other is fine.

Any ideas?

Isn't exactly what you want, but maybe it's workable...

x = 10, x = 40, x = 160, x = 225, x = 320, x = 640, x = 1280, y = 24 x^2-102

Although, there may be a way to do plot them both on the same graph, from experience, the time & effort finding the method may be more than it's worth. It's probably simpler to graph them separately, then use your favorite picture editing program to put in one graph.
