Ax vs subplot? - Orion Constellation Project

Learning Python for data science. I can get the right answers :slight_smile: but I’m still quite confused about the relationship between and “ax” (same as axes) and a subplot. I’m starting to think that when I reference a specific “ax” I’m really indicated that that’s a set of actual axes (x/y) …like a coordinate plane-ish. And there could be mulitple axes. But this makes me think that a subplot is the same as an axes. Maybe a subplot can have an axes or not? I’ve fiddled around and googled a bunch, but if someone have a great explanation, I’d LOVE it.

Here, I used zero axes. but…I’m pretty sure we’d say that this has one axes…
