Great! First, we need to create a figure:
figure = plt.figure(figsize=(8, 4))
Previously, we simply created a subplot using
plt.subplot(). This time, we’ll use another method to add multiple subplots to the same figure:
subplot1 = figure.add_subplot(121)
subplot2 = figure.add_subplot(122)
You may be wondering about the mysterious numbers inside the parentheses – 121 and 122.
add_suplot(xyn) (shorthand for
add_suplot(x, y, n)) refers to a grid of subplots with x rows and y columns, and it creates a subplot at position n. Subplots are numbered from left to right in subsequent rows. For instance:
Now, in our code:
(121) is short for
(1, 2, 1) and means: create a grid with 1 row and 2 columns, and place a subplot in the 1st column.
(122) is short for
(1, 2, 2) and means: create a grid with 1 row and 2 columns, and place a subplot in the 2nd column.
We will see the following result:
