You got twenty dots. It's just that they were on twenty separate plots.

That line above is not valid R code. You should have gotten an error

You should define a function before it is called. It was only because I corrected the error in the assignment to "number" and ran it again that the function was available ... for plotting twenty separate points in twenty separate plots.

 number<- c(0,2,3,4,5,6,8)
 rsidp<- function(x){
 i+0    #   that line does nothing
 {y<-sample(number,x,replace = TRUE)}
 return(y)  # that line only wastes time
 plot(NA, xlim=c(1,20), ylim=range(number), ylab="sample mean", xlab=
 "sample size")
 for (i in seq(1:20))
 mean(rsidpVector)  # that line does nothing
 points (length(rsidpVector), mean(rsidpVector) )
