Description

These errors occur when the first argument to plots[pointplot] or plots[pointplot] is not a set of points of numeric values specified in the proper format.  For the correct syntax, see the plots[pointplot] and plots[pointplot3d] help pages.

Examples

Example 1

withplots:

The variable x is undefined:

pointplot1,2,2,x,3,8;

Error, (in plots:-pointplot) incorrect specification of points data

 

Solution:

 

Defining the variable fixes this error.

x5

x:=5

(2.1)

pointplot1,2,2,x,3,8;

 

Example 2

Lowercase pi is used instead of uppercase Pi.

withplots:

pointplot([[1, 2], [2, 4], [pi, 8]]);

Error, (in plots:-pointplot) incorrect specification of points data

 

Solution:

Using uppercase Pi corrects the error.

pointplot([[1, 2], [2, 4], [Pi, 8]]);
