# Plot for two range of x

Asked by pallav pal on 15 Feb 2013

I have two ranges of x = [0:0.01:1] and x = [2:0.01:3] and I want to plot x vs. Y in one plot for the two rages of x values without using hold on command. Is it possible in matlab?

Below I have used hold on command (which I don't want to use) to plot

```x = [0:0.01:1]
Y = x./5;
plot(x, Y, 'Color',[0.85 0.16 0], 'linewidth', 2);
hold on
x = [2:0.01:3]
Y = x./5;
plot(x, Y, 'Color',[0.85 0.16 0], 'linewidth', 2);
```

Something like this?

```x = [0:0.01:1 nan 2:0.01:3]
y = x./5
plot(x,y)
```

Yes I want this exactly. Thank you very much. Where to see the details about nan ?

Or still separate them in different graphic objects:

```    x1 = [0:0.01:1] ;
y1 = x1./5;
x2 = [2:0.01:3] ;
y2 = x2./5;
plot(x1, y1, '-', x2,y2,'-', 'Color',[0.85 0.16 0], 'linewidth', 2) ;```
