```First make a factor with the levels.

jet\$Classes <- factor(ifelse(jet\$amtemp < 90, "low", ifelse(jet\$amtemp <
100, "medium", "high")))

Then make life easier and use ggplot

install.packages("ggplot2")
library("ggplot2")
ggplot(jet, aes(x = amtemp, y = thrust, colour = Classes)) +
geom_point()

HTH,

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more
than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to
say what the experiment died of.

I figured out how to do the rest, the only thing I need to do now is to
somehow change the numbers which are < 90 to a character string "low" .
The
values which are between 100 - 90 to convert to character string
"medium".
And the values larger than 100 to convert to character string "high".
Then I
would use this line.

plot(thrust~amtemp, jet, col=as.numeric(jet\$amtemp),
pch=as.numeric(jet\$amtemp))

The thing is that I dont know how to convert those numerical values into
"low" "medium" and "high"

Hmm, but then when I think about it better if its changed to the strings
above, it wont remember the exact numerical value.

Basically what I want to do is make a scatterplot and then just change
the
color and the symbol of those 3 groups so they can be distinguished on
the
graph.
