# Can you plot functions in R?

## Can you plot functions in R?

The plot() function in R isn’t a single defined function but a placeholder for a family of related functions. The exact function being called will depend upon the parameters used. At its simplest, plot() function simply plots two vectors against each other. This gives a simple plot for y = x^2.

## What is plot command in R?

The plot() function is used to draw points (markers) in a diagram. The function takes parameters for specifying points in the diagram.

How we can plot various functions in R programming?

Different Types of Plot Functions

1. “p”: is used for points plot.
2. “l”: is used for lines plot.
3. “b”: is used for both point plot and lines plot in a single place.
4. “c”: is used to join empty point by the lines.
5. “o”: is used for both lines and over-plotted point.
6. “h”: is used for ‘histogram plot’
7. “s”: is used for stair steps.

How do you create a graph from a function in R?

To plot a chart of an Object in R, use the plot() function. Point and line plots can be produced using the plot() function, which takes x and y points either as vectors or single numbers along with many other parameters.

### What is a plot function?

The plot function in Matlab is used to create a graphical representation of some data. It is often very easy to “see” a trend in data when plotted, and very difficult when just looking at the raw numbers.

Description. Generic function for plotting of R objects. For more details about the graphical parameter arguments,see par.

• Usage
• Arguments. Alternatively,a single plotting structure,function or any R object with a plot method can be provided.

• type: character indicating the type of plotting. Allowed values are: “p” for points “l” for lines “b” for both points and lines “c” for empty points joined by lines “o”
• lty: line types.
