How do you make a boxplot in Sage given a dataset?

Thanks for the explanation. How can I implement these functions in Sage? At least for my own usage.

These are all accessible using the "dot" object-oriented notation. See, for example, this documentation, from which this example stems.

sage: v = vector([1,2,3]); w = vector([0,5,-9])
sage: v.cross_product(v)
(0, 0, 0)
sage: u = v.cross_product(w); u
(-33, 9, 5)
sage: u.dot_product(v)
sage: u.dot_product(w)

I only see cross product and dot product? What about the other things I mentioned? And for instance the distance from a point to a plane? I can't find any of it by searching.

2012-04-25 07:43:34 +0200 asked a question Basic vector functions in Sage

Isn't there any inbuilt 3D vector functions in Sage?

For instance like a function to get the dot product, cross product or angle between two vectors? Or functions to get the distance from a point to a line? Find the intersections between two lines? Having such functions would be a great help and would greatly increase the speed of my workflow in school.
