# Python | Figure Size of Plot

Python | Figure Size of Plot: In this article, we are going to learn about the figure size of plot and its Python implementation.

In some cases, the automatic figure size generated by the matplotlib.pyplot is not visually good or there could be some non-acceptable ratio in the figure. So, rather than allowing a pyplot to decide the figure size, we can manually define the dimensions of the figure.

In this article, we are going to change figure size using an inbuilt function:

```matplotlib.pyplot.figure(figsize)
```

Syntax:

```matplotlib.pyplot.figure(figsize=(9,3))

# figsize(float, float)
width, height in inches.
```

## Python code for figure size of plot

```# Data Visualization using Python
# Figure Size

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

x = np.arange(50)
y = 2*x*x + 7*x - 14

# Example 1
plt.figure(figsize=(9,5))
# Leftmost
plt.plot(x, y, 'yo')
plt.title('Plot')
plt.ylabel('Function Vaule')
plt.xlabel('x-axis')
plt.show()

# Example 2
plt.figure(figsize=(6,9))
# Leftmost
plt.plot(x, y, 'yo')
plt.title('Plot')
plt.ylabel('Function Vaule')
plt.xlabel('x-axis')
plt.show()

# Example 3
plt.figure(figsize=(3,3))
# Leftmost
plt.plot(x, y, 'yo')
plt.title('Plot')
plt.ylabel('Function Vaule')
plt.xlabel('x-axis')
plt.show()

# Example 4
plt.figure(figsize=(7,7))
# Leftmost
plt.plot(x, y, 'yo')
plt.title('Plot')
plt.ylabel('Function Vaule')
plt.xlabel('x-axis')
plt.show()
```

Output:

```Output is as figure
```
