  • We will start by adding a title and axis labels to our plot. To add the title, we use the title method:

    import numpy as np
    X = np.array([1, 2, 5, 8, 12])
    Y = np.array([3, 6, 7, 12, 9])
    import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
    plt.plot(X, Y)
    plt.<< your code goes here >>("This is the title")
  • And, for the the axis labels, we use the xlabel and ylabel methods respectively:

    plt.xlabel("X label")
    plt.<< your code goes here >>("Y label")
  • Finally, we use show to display our plot:

    plt.<< your code goes here >>
