# How to Set Origin of Plot Axes to Zero in R (Example Code)

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to set the start of x- and y-axes to zero in the R programming language.

## Example: Set Plot Axes to Start at 0

plot(10:20, 10:20, # Create plot with default axes pch = 16, cex = 3) |

plot(10:20, 10:20, # Create plot with default axes pch = 16, cex = 3)

plot(10:20, 10:20, # Force origin of axes to start at zero pch = 16, cex = 3, xlim = c(0, 20), ylim = c(0, 20), xaxs = "i", yaxs = "i") |

plot(10:20, 10:20, # Force origin of axes to start at zero pch = 16, cex = 3, xlim = c(0, 20), ylim = c(0, 20), xaxs = "i", yaxs = "i")
