Hoping someone saying ''Templot '' would help ? only bit understanding is running into the respectable 3 foot curve. will have to scratch my head more. my A level result this week was not respectable in current maths. was though in 1972. An ex Railway draughtsman I should be able to plot a curve. Peter
