Re: st: superimpose 45 degree line in -scatter-

Good solution except, of course, 0.3*x gives you a slope of 0.3 not a 30 degree line; for that you need the tangent of 30 degrees.

You can define some variables to give you any slope you want. For example,
if you wanted a 30 line.

gen h=_n;
gen v=.3*x;

Here is the command:

twoway (scatter y x, sort) (line v x),  legend(off);

Perhaps there is a more elegant way.

```Dear Statalisters,

I'm using Stata 8 and I would like to know whether and how it is possible to
superimpose a 45 degree line, a 30 degree line, etc over a -scatter- graph.

Further, does Stata support graphs in polar coordinate planes? Or did someone
wrote something on this?
