Does this solve your first question? *-------------- begin example ------------------- input a b c 1 2 3 2 3 4 end twoway function y = a[1] + b[1]*x + c[1]*x^2, /// range(-3 3) || /// function y = a[2] + b[2]*x + c[2]*x^2, /// range(-3 3) *---------------- end example ------------------- I don't understand the data structure involved in your second question: a point on that curve should be defined by two values: and x coordinate and a y coordinate. If you have those you can use -scatter- as an overlay plot within the example I gave above. You could also consider the -xline()- or -yline()- options.
