# [R] Multiple scatterplots

```Please note: in R you can specify (some of the) graphics parameters as the
appropriate length vectors. So your plot example below can also be done as,
for example:

plot(
rep.int(aa,3),c(cc,bb,dd),col=rep(c("red","blue","green"),e=length(aa)))

However, this doesn't seem to fit the posted request, where maybe something
like a trellis plot of the different distributions is what is wanted?? --
but I may well misunderstand.

Assuming you want all three distributions on one
scatter plot does this help?

aa <- 1:10
bb <- 11:2
cc  <- bb^2
dd <- c(3,4,7,9,11,32,11,14,5,9)

plot(aa,cc, col="red")
points(aa,bb, col="blue")
points(aa,dd, col="green")

Also in plotting it is a good idea to look at all the
variations etc that you can get with par()

Type  ?par
