You have to be more specific.  What kind of vertors are they?  Are they
both numeric continuous variables?  What kind of plot(s) do you want to

Assuming you have two continuous variables and you want to draw a
scatter plot, one way to do it is to use plot().  For example:
  plot(x, y)

Take a loot at ?plot to find out how to use it.
