What is paradoxical about this painting is that, while Bonaparte is ostensibly presented here as the exponent of rational values, the impression that it conveys is not so much of a modern secular leader as of a saviour in the Christian tradition. His hand extended towards one of the plague-stricken suggests that he has miraculous powers of healing.

In Section 3 we consider how to sketch the graphs of more complicated functions, sometimes involving trigonometric functions. We look at graphs which are sums, quotients and composites of different functions, and at those which are defined by a different rule for different values of x.
