# np.linspace() in python

>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> N = 8 >>> y = np.zeros(N) >>> x1 = np.linspace(0, 10, N, endpoint=True) >>> x2 = np.linspace(0, 10, N, endpoint=False) >>> plt.plot(x1, y, 'o') [] >>> plt.plot(x2, y + 0.5, 'o') [ ] >>> plt.ylim([-0.5, 1]) (-0.5, 1) >>> plt.show()

**Here is what the above code is Doing:**

1. We import the matplotlib.pyplot module and rename it to plt.

2. We create an array of 8 zeros.

3. We create two arrays of 8 numbers, x1 and x2, using the linspace() function.

4. We plot x1 against y, and x2 against y + 0.5.

5. We set the y-axis limits to -0.5 to 1.

6. We show the plot.
