# Bounds error: attempt to access 21-element array

I am trying to get an output of the function in array form.

#Additionally, I am unable to ask my questions nicely in the post, as in I am unable to write cells.

Try

``````x=-10:10
y=gaussian.(x)
``````

Note the â€ś.â€ť after gaussian. Array indices start at 1 in Julia. In your for loop i goes from -10 to 10 and you are trying to assign y[-10], which does not exist.

Thank you that worked. Now I was trying to plot the same using

using Plots
x=[-10,-9,-8,-7,-6,-5,-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]
plot(x,y,linewidth=1.5, linecolor=:blue)

And it shows following error

Cannot convert Float64 to series data for plotting

I donâ€™t know much about Jupyter but the following should work:

``````using Plots
function gaussian(x)
exp(-(x)^2)
end
x = -10:10
y=gaussian.(x)
plot(x,y,linewidth=1.5, linecolor=:blue)
``````

At least it works in Atom.
