Dear R-Experts,

I can easily plot an histogram and its density curve. But when I try to add the Gauss curve on the histogram with the following Rcode here below, I don't get it. What is wrong ? Or what is missing in my code ?

##Plot an histogram
h=hist(newdata$math.test, prob=TRUE, col="blue", border="white", xlab="Note test math", ylab="Densité", main="Test math") 

##Add the density curve on the histogram

##Add the Gauss curve on the histogram
x <- seq(from = min(newdata$math.test, na.rm=TRUE), to = max(newdata$math.test, na.rm=TRUE), lines(x, dnorm(x, mean(newdata$math.test, na.rm = TRUE), sd(newdata$math.test, na.rm = TRUE))) 

Best, thanks for your time.
