[R] Display more than one plot

Just saw I did something stupid. Both examples create a 2 by 2 grid in
your graph window, so you'll be able to plot 4 graphs in that window.
If you plot only 2 graphs, the lower half of the window will be empty
still. Just check the helpfiles and experiment a bit to get a grip of
how to get which graph where. It's pretty straight forward.

Kind regards
