### Question

In Matplotlib, what if the number of x values doesn’t match the number of y values for our plot?

### Answer

If the two values do not match dimensions, then this will usually end up in an error, and the graph not showing.

The dimensions of the x values must match the dimensions of the y values, meaning that they must have the same number of values passed in.

If using the Numpy library, you can obtain the shape of an Array using the `.shape`

property.

```
Items = np.array([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])
Items.shape # (5, ) - which means a 1D array of 5 elements
```
