# lines() function when plotting trajectories

I have the following line of code:

``````set.seed(49)
plot.replicates(numrep=19,pstart=0.5,ngen=200,wAA=1, N=100, wAa=0.94,waa=0.97)
``````

How would I be able to use the lines() function in this to show red lines on the plot for the fitness values? (WAA=1 and waa=0.97)?

As context this is the part of my workbook that I'm working from:

Type the command set.seed(49) and then use plot.replicates() to plot 19 trajectories for gene frequencies under the following scenario, running for 200 generations: population size 20; wAA=1, wAa = 0.94, waa = 0.97. The values in pstart vary from 0.05 to 0.95 in steps of 0.05. In addition, using the lines() function, for each starting frequency superimpose the deterministic trajectory for the same fitness values, colouring the lines red, with a double-width

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

edit:
plot.replicates comes from this function:

``````> plot.replicates = function(numrep,pstart,ngen,N,wAA,wAa,waa)
> #Function plot.replicates takes number of replicates, numrep; starting frequency, pstart;
> #number of generations, ngen;Population size, N; fitnesses wAA, wAa, waa
