Thanks for the quick response. But the points I'm trying to superimpose isn't exactly the density of the data. Is there any other way to do it?

try something like this:

x <- rnorm(200)
hist(x, col = "blue", freq = FALSE)
lines(density(x), col = "red", lwd = 2)

Hello,

I'm trying to superimpose a line plot onto a histogram but I'm not having any luck. I've attached the dataset. What I did was:

Now I'm trying to superimpose the following points with a line connecting them onto the histogram:

x y

```100  0.535665393824959
200  0.212744329736556
300  0.0844933242968584
400  0.0335572838043417
500  0.0133275771274986
600  0.00529316714442912
700  0.0021022289461042
800  0.000834919136549392
900  0.000331595645597124
1000 0.000131696193518099
1100 5.2304327929049e-05
1200 2.07731343406939e-05

```

Basically, the x values correspond to the break points in the histogram. Next I used the command

But for some reason, the line plot is shifted to the right and doesn't line up with the histogram.

Thanks for the help!
