### First example of using scilab

I tried generating beat waves using scilab

-->Ts=0.0001;-->n=-1000:1000;-->tn=n*Ts;-->xn=2*cos(40*3.14159*tn).*cos(800*3.14159*tn);-->plot(tn, xn);

This program shows the Beat waves for the equations given below

Equations for the two signals

The individual plots and the resultant beat wave is shown below

Plot of frequency equal to 20

Plot of frequency equal to 400

Resultant Beat Wave

This should come as no surprise, that beating forms the basis for Amplitude modulation.
