Lets plot

Now that we have a basic grasp on vectors, we are going to put these pieces together and finally make a plot! Here are the steps we are going to take:

  1. Import the library for plotting
  2. Create our vectors x and y for plotting
  3. Generate the plots using matplotlib.pyplot

Below in the IDE I implemented this for you!

Challenge: Rather than plotting y = x, can you plot y = x^2?

# 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) # Show the plot
