Now write down temperature for every cell of your screen and draw x-Y
plot: temperature vs cell number in grid line.

That doesn't really matter. Now you have x-Y plot of some function and
you can process it mathematically as you wish.

Then you must dont't think that you can JPEG compress your screen
