% Load the points for creating a spline curve
load splineData points x y;

% Plot the points for the spline curve
figure;
plot(points(:,1),points(:,2),':ok');
hold on;

% Plot the spline curve
plot(x, y, 'LineWidth', 2);
axis([.5 7 -.8 1.8]);

% Add a title and axis labels
title('The Convex-Hull Property');
xlabel('x');
ylabel('y');

% Label points 3, 4, & 5 of the spline curve
xt = points(3,1) - 0.05; yt = points(3,2) - 0.1;
text(xt, yt, 'Point 3', 'FontSize',12);

xt = points(4,1) - 0.05; yt = points(4,2) + 0.1;
text(xt, yt, 'Point 4', 'FontSize',12);

xt = points(5,1) + 0.15; yt = points(5,2) - 0.05;
text(6.1,.5, 'Point 5', 'FontSize',12);
