# [R] Issues when trying to fit a curve when generating random deviates

```Hello,

I cannot reproduce the error.

Anyway, if the data is discrete a bar plot might be more appropriate.

barplot(table(x),
col = "green",
main = "Bar plot of Binomial Distribution B(20,0.4)")

Or, to have proportions,

barplot(table(x)/length(x), etc)

Hope this helps,
