# Simple Explanation about Logistic Regression Plot

I was reading an article about logistic regression and I got confused by one of the pictures:

First animated gif from Uni of Toronto. What is depicted there? What is y-axis and x-axis (from 0 to 1)? How is it related to logistic regression?

UPD: this post is not of the best quality - but I don't ask about the post, but about the picture. I've seen this picture multiple times and once I've seen a senior statistician laughing at this picture on twitter - however, no explanation followed why it is funny.

UPD1: here is another example of this plot:

• y is traditionaly used to denote the output. Axes should be $$X_1$$ and $$X_2$$, two explanatory variables, and the output, y, should appear in the legend (red : y = 1, blue y = 0).
