How to label your axis

Just like adding a title to your plot is very important, axis labels to be very useful as well. In the matplotlib.pyplot library, it is easy to add labels to your plot and you can do this with a similar command to adding a title!

Below I added an x and a y label to our graph!

            
# Import out libraries import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np # Create the x and y vectors x = np.array(range(100)) y = x # Plot! plt.plot(x,y) # Add a title plt.title(' Plot of y = x') # Add a xlabel plt.xlabel('x axis') # Add a ylabel plt.ylabel('y axis') # Show the plot plt.show()
