# line 2 points
x2 = [10,20,30]
y2 = [40,10,30]
# plotting the line 2 points 
plt.plot(x2, y2, label = "line 2")
plt.xlabel('x - axis')
# Set the y axis label of the current axis.
plt.ylabel('y - axis')
# Set a title of the current axes.
plt.title('Two or more lines on same plot with suitable legends ')
