# How to plot additional points on the top of a scatter plot in Matplotlib?

To plot additional points on the top of a scatter plot in matplotlib, we can take the following steps −

## Steps

Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.

Make a list of x and y data points.

Create a scatter plot with x and y data points.

Plot the additional points with

**marker='*'**To display the figure, use

**show()**method.

## Example

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt # Set the figure size plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50] plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True # List of data points x = [1, 2, 6, 4] y = [1, 5, 2, 3] # Scatter plot with x and y plt.scatter(x, y, c=x, cmap='hot') plt.plot([3, 4], [6, 7], marker='*', ls='none', ms=20) # Display the plot plt.show()

## Output

It will produce the following output −
