# How to plot multiple values of a variable in one graph?

I put 5 txt files into a loop to graph the FFT and PDS continuously. They are audio files converted to txt files. I used "findpeaks" to find all peaks in the graphs. I then used "max" to find the max peak in each of the 5 graphs. I got 5 answers for the same variable. (l=max(v)). How do I plot all of these answers in one graph? Below is an example of my work. Here is the values I received for the max for each graph, l = 7.1537e+08, l = 1.3054e+09, l = 2.4736e+09, l = 3.4960e+09, l = 2.4039e+09
numfiles = 5;
y = cell(1, numfiles);
for k = 1:numfiles
myfilename = sprintf('file%d.txt', k);
y{k} = importdata(myfilename);
plot(y{k})
m=(abs(fft(y{k})));
%n=m(1:y{k}/2);
%plot(n);
pwelch(y{k})
v= pwelch(y{k})
plot(v)
xlim([0 4000])
findpeaks(v)
l= max(v)
end

yes

I believe you want to plot the maximum value for each graph against the index file. You can simply store maximum values in l as an array and plot the array.
In the loop, change l=max(v) to l(k)=max(v) and use plot(l) after the loop.

I want more of a scatter plot of the data so I can compare the results.

Okay. I will try that and see how it turns out. Thank you.
