How to install matplotlib in Python

You can install the matplotlib library in Python by following these steps:

  1. Open your command prompt or terminal.
  2. Type pip install matplotlib and hit enter.
  3. Wait for the installation to finish.

Alternatively, if you’re using an IDE like Jupyter Notebook, you can simply type !pip install matplotlib in a cell and run it.

Once matplotlib is installed, you can import it in your Python code using the following line:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

This will allow you to use matplotlib‘s plotting functions and create visualizations in your Python scripts.
