You can use the following syntax to set the axis ranges for a plot in Matplotlib:

#specify x-axis range plt.xlim(1, 15) #specify y-axis range plt.ylim(1, 30)

The following examples show how to use this syntax in practice.

Example 1: Specify Both Axes Ranges

The following code shows how to specify the range for both axes:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt #define x and y x = [1, 4, 10] y = [5, 11, 27] #create plot of x and y plt.plot(x, y) #specify x-axis and y-axis range plt.xlim(1, 15) plt.ylim(1, 30)

Example 2: Specify Range for X-Axis Only

The following code shows how to specify the range for the x-axis only:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt #define x and y x = [1, 4, 10] y = [5, 11, 27] #create plot of x and y plt.plot(x, y) #specify x-axis range plt.xlim(1, 15)

Example 3: Specify Range for Y-Axis Only

The following code shows how to specify the range for the y-axis only:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt #define x and y x = [1, 4, 10] y = [5, 11, 27] #create plot of x and y plt.plot(x, y) #specify y-axis range plt.ylim(1, 30)
