Hi,

For the equation y = 1 / (1+9exp(-x)) I seem to get an S like shape from x=0 to x=8, with the head continuing along the line y=1. There's supposed to be something to observe at y = 0.5, but as far as I can see there's nothing remarkable, except that its virtually linear at this point. Should I be noticing something further?

Cheers.

For others wanting to see:

Put in "1 / (1+9*exp(-x))"

I suppose it's a sort of point of inflection. I could be wrong. I'm not sure of the exact definition of one, but I've only seen them where positive gradients meet negative ones.

there are no turning point on that entire curve as the gradient is never 0.
