# Using plotmaple to return multiple plots browsing

• I need to generate 4 different plots (one for each multiple choice option).

Is there a way to get all 4 plots using just one plotmaple call?

I currently have 4, and the question seems sluggish when previewing.  I'm wondering if it is because of all the back and forth between Maple TA and Maple.

• Hi Sarah,

4 separate calls for plots shouldn't be sluggish, I would follow up with support on that concern, however you also have the following option:

I have used this many times..  use the Plots:-display command to display multiple color plots on the same grid, with a legend indicating what choice is what line.  For example redLine=choiceA blueLine=choiceB..   etc

Here is a simple to follow example that illustrates this and also uses an algorithmic answer in the multiple choice:

Link to .zip file that can be imported into your Mobius Course (it contains a single question). Hope it works out for you,

• Have you tried using an array of plots?

with(plots):A:=Array(1..2,1..2):A[1,1]:=plot(x^2,x=-1..1):A[1,2]:=plot(sin(x)/x,x=0.1..Pi):A[2,1]:=plot(cos(x),x=-Pi..Pi):A[2,2]:=plot(sin(x),x=-Pi..Pi):display(A,axes=normal,scaling=constrained,size=[300, 300])
