In mathematics, a graph is a representation of a set of objects where some pairs of the objects are in some sense "related". The objects correspond to mathematical abstractions called "vertices" or "nodes", and the relations between them are represented by mathematical abstractions called "edges" or "arcs". The basic notion of a graph was developed by the 17th-century French mathematician Pierre de Fermat, and the term "graph" was coined by the 19th-century mathematician James Joseph Sylvester. The more general mathematical concept of a graph "in which any kind of relation between elements of the set is expressed as an edge, is called a network" (Kolmogorov, "1956, p. 111"). In other words, an undirected graph is a graph in which the edges have no direction associated with them. The most familiar examples of graphs are the graphs of equations. In general, the vertices of a graph can represent concepts and the edges can represent real-valued functions on the concepts, so one can speak of the graph as a function's graph or of the edge as a function's edge.

Polar coordinates are a two-dimensional coordinate system that specifies a point in terms of distance from a reference direction (the pole) and angle from a reference direction (the polar axis).

hard to pay. Eliminated the perimeter tto find a Kardashian question of the curves half x times two squire us Why over two square? It's equal to we'LL sign there, Squire Ah, sign faded square, which is equal to one. And what fate? Guys Between zero and pi we have Max is between well, half negative. About half and a half. Why is between Cyril on DH too? This is a Scottish in question of the curve. Had to be scats a curve and indicated with an arrow The direction invades. The kerf is traced as permit to increases. So from part of a half the crew is is half off. Thanks. So first we can scotch right here on one thing, Nancy from zero axe is they got to? Well, half. Why his secret to cereal at this point? No, my food isat little pie Axe is a ho too negative one half. Why is it the serial year This arrow? There's a direction invades the crew ifit's trist as permit to you, Chris
