    plot multivariable function - stupid question?

    Is is possible to plot a multivariable funciton? How?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but, as I have read in a forum signature "The only stupid question is the one you don't ask. The only stupid person is the one who pretends to know."

    Thanks.

    Anyway, so, basically, z is the dependent variable whereas x and y are independent variable, right?

    what does the notation z = f(x,y) indicate ?

    Yeah right. That was pretty straight forward, but there's no reason for sarcasm though. Thanks anyway.

    Well, that's not what it seemed... However, if that was the case, my apologies.
