# Matplotlib.pyplot.xlim() in Python

• Last Updated : 27 Apr, 2020

Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. Pyplot is a state-based interface to a Matplotlib module which provides a MATLAB-like interface. There are various plots which can be used in Pyplot are Line Plot, Contour, Histogram, Scatter, 3D Plot, etc.

Output: ## matplotlib.pyplot.xlim() Function

The xlim() function in pyplot module of matplotlib library is used to get or set the x-limits of the current axes.
Syntax:

matplotlib.pyplot.xlim(*args, **kwargs)

Parameters: This method accept the following parameters that are described below:

• left: This parameter is used to set the xlim to left.
• right: This parameter is used to set the xlim to right.
• **kwargs: This parameter is Text properties that is used to control the appearance of the labels.

Returns: This returns the following:

• left, right: This returns the tuple of the new x-axis limits.

Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.pyplot.ylim() function in matplotlib.pyplot:

Example-1:

 # Implementation of matplotlib functionimport matplotlib.pyplot as pltimport numpy as np  h = plt.plot(np.arange(0, 10), np.arange(0, 10))plt.xlim([-5, 20])l1 = np.array((1, 1))angle = 65  th1 = plt.text(l1, l1, 'Line_angle',               fontsize = 10, rotation = angle,               rotation_mode ='anchor')  plt.title(" matplotlib.pyplot.xlim() Example")plt.show()

Output: Example-2:

 # Implementation of matplotlib functionimport matplotlib.pyplot as pltimport numpy as np  np.random.seed(9680801)  mu, sigma = 50, 13x = mu + sigma * np.random.randn(10000)  # the histogram of the datan, bins, patches = plt.hist(x, 50,                            density = True,                             facecolor ='g',                             alpha = 0.75)    plt.xlabel('No of Users in K')plt.title('Histogram of IQ')plt.text(50, .035, r'$\mu = 50, \ \ \sigma = 13$')  plt.xlim(-10, 110)plt.ylim(0, 0.04)  plt.grid(True)plt.title(" matplotlib.pyplot.xlim() Example")plt.show()
