Teachers can download a postscript copy of this figure
to make a transparency for classes.

These figures indicate the general idea.

  1. Go to the list of figures in 8.5 by 11 postscript.
  2. Download the zip file containing the figure, for example F0701.zip.
  3. Unzip the file to obtain a postscript file, for example F0701.pos.
  4. Copy the file to a postscript printer, on an IBM PC: copy F0701.pos PRN:
  5. Do not try to print the file: print F0701.pos since this prints junk.

If you put a transparency in the printer, you have an overhead to project in class.
