Hello, I have a list of functions but I don't know how to put them all on a single graph? I know one way to use 'show' like : show(plot1+plot2),

but is there a way that can cope with a function list or graph obj list? As maybe I'm not sure how many functions to plot.

for a specific exapmle:

var('x y')
for i in range(5):

now how to show all functions in the lfs list on a single graph?

That is it. You can also use the sum command to combine a list of plot objects.

for i in range(0,5):

You can use list comprehensions in Python to shorten this significantly and produce the same result.

sum([plot(x^2+10 - i,(x,-3,3)) for i in range(0,5)])

Doesn't seem to work. Complains about wrong type. Apparently you can't add plots together with sum(). Leaky abstraction?

TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +: 'int' and 'tuple'

I've got a solution like this:

g = Graphics()
g += plot(x-3, (x,-5,5))
g += plot(x-2, (x, -5, 5))
