There are several ways to arrange multiple figures.

1. Use LaTeX to organise separate figures

Please read the documentation about package "subfigure" which works
really well, and supports subcaptions. This approach does not involve
modifying your R code (if indeed that is what you are using to generate
your figures - you don't explicitly mention this)

2. Use R to organise your figures.

Please read documentation on commands:

par()  eg: par(mfrow=c(2,2))

This approach generates one single "figure" made up of multiple figures.
This single figure can then be incorporated into LaTeX in the usual fashion.

Depending on what you are trying to achieve, both approaches can be
mixed in the same document with good effect.

Hope this helps,
