This is the sixth tutorial in the **GeoGebra Essentials Series**. If you are not familiar with GeoGebra, you may want to read the Introduction to GeoGebra post and earlier tutorials. They contain the pre-requisites of this tutorial.

In the tutorial below, menu commands, located in the menu bar, are in **brown bold text**, and submenus are denoted by the **>** symbol.
