Plotting Exponential Distribuions

## Description

Here, we will plot an exponential distribution with average rate 1.5 from 0 to 5. To define our range of rates, we'll use the sequence command to create a range of points from 0 to 5 incremented by 0.5.

## Sage Cell

#### Code

```
x <- seq(from=0, to=5, by=0.5)
plot(x=x, y=dexp(x, rate=1.5))
```

## Options

#### Plotting an Exponential Distribution Curve

We can plot an exponential curve by adding "l" to the `plot` command. To increase accuracy, we will generate the plot using 200 points. This is accomplished by setting `length.out` in `seq` to 200.

#### Code

```
x <- seq(from=0, to=5, length.out=200)
plot(x=x, y=dexp(x, rate=1.5), "l")
```
