Plotting of Data using Generic plots in R Programming – plot() Function
• Last Updated : 20 Jul, 2020

`plot()` function is defined as as generic function for plotting in R Language. It can be used to create basic graphs of different type .

Syntax:
plot(x, y, type)

Parameters:
x and y: coordinates of points to plot
type: the type of graph to create

Returns: different type of plots

Example 1:

 `# R program to plot a graph ` ` `  `# Values for x and y axis ` `x <- 1:5; y = x * x ` ` `  `# Using plot() function ` `plot``(x, y, type = ``"l"``) ` `plot``(x, y, type = ``"h"``) `

Output:

In above example type=“l” stands for lines graph, type=“h” stands for ‘histogram’ like vertical lines.

Example 2:

 `# R program to plot a graph ` ` `  `# Creating x and y-values ` `x - 1:5; y = x * x ` ` `  `# Using plot function ` `plot``(x, y, type = ``"b"``) ` `plot``(x, y, type = ``"s"``) ` `plot``(x, y, type = ``"p"``) `

Output:

Here, in above example type=“b” stands for both that means points are connected by a line

type=“s”indicates stair steps

type=“p” for points (by default).
