It's also possible to add points within a table:

    How do I get every positive integer to show up as a points instead of lines? For example, instead of having a curve for y = x^2, just the points where x is a ehole number.

    Hi Chris, Try the regressions tour in the help menu (?) to get started creating curves of best fit. If you want to learn more, check out the Regressions page at http://learn.desmos.com/regressions. Happy graphing!

    I'm trying to plot the focal points of an ellipse by first using the formula c^2=a^2-b^2 and then using the variable 'c' in point plotting form however this fails with a warning of "Too many variables".  Is this not possible to do?  I've sort of gotten around this by plotting the ellipse formula using 'x' instead of 'c' but this gives vertical lines at the focal points so I'd still prefer to find a way to plot the points dynamically as 'a' and 'b' change.
