Tool/Plotter to draw points (a scatter plot or a curve) on a graph or 2D plane (and connect points if needed) according to their coordinates.

Answers to Questions

How to plot dots (x,y)?

Use a 2-dimensional coordinate system with a horizontal axis $ x $ and a vertical axis $ y $.

Locate the position of each coordinate of the points on each axis, by positioning the value of the abscissa on the axis $ x $ and the value of the ordinate on the axis $ y $.

The position of the point is at the intersection of the vertical line passing through the abscissa and the horizontal line passing through the ordinate.

Example: $ (x,y) = (1,2) $, the point is in position $ x = 1 $ and $ y = 2 $

To represent the values of a function (affine, polynomial, exponential, etc.), use the image by a function dedicated page on dCode.

How to connect the dots?

Draw a line between each point found and the next, so as to form a curve in parts.

The path obtained can possibly represent a drawing if the dot order is preserved.
