Single Line Plot

To draw a basic line plot in Matplotlib, use the plt.plot(~) function like so:

x_values = [1,2,3,4]
y_values = [3,6,9,12]
plt.plot(x_values, y_values) #draw the plot
plt.show() #show the plot

This produces the below plot:

Multiple Line Plot

To draw multiple lines on the same plot, call plt.plot(~) for each line you would like to draw:

x_values_1 = [1,2,3,4]
y_values_1 = [3,6,9,12]
x_values_2 = [1,2,3,4]
y_values_2 = [2,4,6,8]

plt.plot(x_values_1, y_values_1) #Draw the plots
plt.plot(x_values_2, y_values_2)
plt.show() #show the plot

This produces the following output:
