Question:How to use GRID in PLOT3D?

Maple

Hello people in MaplePrimes,

I can't understand a code with PLOT3D using GRID in it.
I hope you will give me explanation about it.

```restart;
k:=[[1,2,10],[1,1,8],[0,1,5],[0,0,6]];
PLOT3D(GRID(1..2,1..3,k),
AXESLABELS(x,y,z));
```

I cannot understand the correspondence between points in the graph and lists in the code such as [1,2,10], [1,1,8].

As two ranges in GRID augments in the code are 1..2 and 1..3, x takes value from 1 to 2, and
y from 1 to 3 in the picture.
And, as k is k:=[[1,2,10],[1,1,8],[0,1,5],[0,0,6]], which means this list of lists are 4 X 3, so in the picture
as for x the interval of 1 to 2 is divided to three sections with the points of value of 0, 1/3, 2/3 and 3/3, which total number is 4.
And, as for y the interval of 1 to 3 is devided to two sections with the points of value of 1, 2 and 3, which total number is 3.

And, I cannot understand why from the grid of [1,1,8] in the code, which I think is the coodinate of (1, 1) on x-y plane, does not mean that the value of z on that point on the graph is not 8, but 1.
