# DotPlot Command

From GeoGebra Manual

- DotPlot( <List of Raw Data> )
- Returns a dot plot for the given list of numbers, as well as the list of the dot plot points. If a number
*n*appears in the list of raw data*k*times, the returned list contains points*(n, 1), (n, 2), ..., (n, k)*. **Example:**`DotPlot({2, 5, 3, 4, 3, 5, 3})`

yields*{(2, 1), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3), (4, 1), (5, 1), (5, 2)}*.

- DotPlot( <List of Raw Data>, <Stack Adjacent Dots (optional)>, <Scale Factor (optional)> )
- Returns a dot plot for the given list of data, as well as the list of the dot plot points. If a data
*n*appears in the list of raw data*k*times, the returned list contains points*(n, 1), (n, 2),..., (n, k)*.If you choose a*Scale Factor s*, the returned list contains points*(n, 1s), (n, 2s), ..., (n, ks)*.*Stack Adjacent Dots*means a Boolean Value (true or false): If you choose*true*, points (which are close to each other) are stacked. If you choose*false*, the result will be the same as without*<Stack Adjacent Dots (optional)>*.

- The command DotPlot will also work with a list of text.
**Example:**`DotPlot({"Red", "Red", "Red", "Blue", "Blue"})`

yields*{(1, 1), (1, 2), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3)}*.**Note:**If you use a list of text the DotPlot command will put the result in alphabetical order. (e.g.*Blue*appears two times,*Red*three times and B comes before R in the alphabet, so you get*(1, 1), (1, 2)*for*Blue*and*(2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3)*for*Red*.)
