I was graphing random functions on geogebra and bumped into something I can't explain. I input \((\sin (x))^x\) and saw this:

Look at \(x= 4, 5, 6\) etc. It seems as if the graph equation's not defined there. And I can't figure out why. Am I missing something obvious? I'd be really glad if someone explained what's happening here.

Thanks in advance!

**Edit:** I figured it out. Silly me!

TopNewestNote that between about \(\displaystyle 3.2\) and \(\displaystyle 6.2\), the value of \(\displaystyle\sin(x)\) is

negative... So, it is pretty obvious what is going on here.A negative number to a positive fractional power is

not defined, so it clear that the grapher would get mad as hell!!! lol.EDIT:It is defined atintegralpowers though...But, since it is just a singlepoint, it is not visible, I guess.Log in to reply

yup...

Never mind. I figured it out. Why am I so stupid? Argh!
