Hello. I am unsure of how you determined which points to plot on the grid. Did you just pick random numbers or how did u know which numbers to pick and i am also unsure of what are your points ( x and y cordinates)

Answer provided by our tutors

Yes, you basically pick out random numbers, with exception of 0, because that is where the function is undefined.

Although numbers are random you still have to have some understanding of the function (for example that function values are going to get very small as you pick numbers larger than 1, and very large if you pick values of x between 0 and 1. 

There is no real rule here - just some trial and error
