## Description

For certain R functions, such as when plotting statistical distributions, it is useful to produce a range of numbers with small increments for the sake of accuracy. To do this, we use the `seq` command. The command has three parameters: `from`, the inclusive lower bound of the sequence, `to` the inclusive upper bound of the sequence, and `by`, the increment of the sequnce. The following cell produces a sequence with the domain. The following cell produces a sequence from 2 to 6 with step 0.5.

## Sage Cell

#### Code

`seq(from=2, to=6, by=0.5)`

## Options

#### Setting length instead of increment

`seq` has a fourth, optional, parameter called `length.out`. This determines the amount of values in the sequence and will automatically calculate the increment (thus, the `by` parameter should not be set). The following cell generates a sequence from 2 to 6 with 11 values:

#### Code

`seq(from=2, to=6, length.out=11)`
