If `P`

and `Q`

are plots then you may display them together via `P+Q`

.

For the vertical line you may use `implicit_plot`

or just draw it
manually via `line`

.

```
var('x,y')
# plot line x=3
P = implicit_plot(x==3,(x,2,4),(y,-1,5))
# manualy draw line x=5
Q = line([(5,-1),(5,5)])
# display P and Q together.
(P+Q).show()
```

Guess plotting `y=x^3`

can be left as an exercise ;-)

Hint.
