# 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 plotplt.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 plotsplt.plot(x_values_2, y_values_2)plt.show() #show the plot ```

This produces the following output:
