# Can I make plot(f(x)) figures smaller?

The plot command is very useful, but the default size of plots is quite large. Is it possible to reduce the size?

Can I make plot(f(x)) figures smaller?

You should have a look at the documentation of plot with

```
sage: plot?
```

There are plenty of options. In particular, to obtain a small picture you have the option `figsize`

as in

```
sage: plot(sin(x), (x,-pi,pi), figsize=4)
```

or

```
sage: P = plot(sin(x), (x,-pi,pi))
sage: P.show(figsize=4)
```

The default value for `figsize`

seems to be 8. With 4 you obtain quite a small picture. Note that you can also set this parameter to a pair `(width,height)`

.
