You can use the following syntax to plot a Beta distribution in R:

#define range p = seq(0, 1, length=100) #create plot of Beta distribution with shape parameters 2 and 10 plot(p, dbeta(p, 2, 10), type='l')

The following examples show how to use this syntax in practice.

**Example 1: Plot One Beta Distribution**

The following code shows how to plot a single Beta distribution:

#define range p = seq(0,1, length=100) #create plot of Beta distribution with shape parameters 2 and 10 plot(p, dbeta(p, 2, 10), type='l')

You can also customize the colors and axes labels of the plot:

#define range p = seq(0,1, length=100) #create custom plot of Beta distribution plot(p, dbeta(p, 2, 10), ylab='density', type ='l', col='purple', main='Beta Distribution')

**Example 2: Plot Multiple Beta Distributions**

The following code shows how to plot multiple Beta distributions with different shape parameters:

#define range p = seq(0,1, length=100) #plot several Beta distributions plot(p, dbeta(p, 2, 10), ylab='density', type ='l', col='purple') lines(p, dbeta(p, 2, 2), col='red') lines(p, dbeta(p, 5, 2), col='blue') #add legend legend(.7, 4, c('Beta(2, 10)','Beta(2, 2)','Beta(1,1)'), lty=c(1,1,1),col=c('purple', 'red', 'blue'))
