currently I am trying to plot for the Legendre polynomial $P_n(x)$ for $n=0,1,2,3,4$ and $-1 \leq x \leq 1$ .

To plot for it, I wrote the following code:

MyLegendre=Table[[LegendreP[v,x],x],{n,0,4}]; Plot[MyLegendre,{x,-1,1},PlotLabels -> {"v=0", "v=1", "v=2", "v=3", "v=4"}]

However, Mathematica keeps stating that there is an error with my above code. Any help to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for the help!

    $\begingroup$ MyLegendre = Table[LegendreP[v, x], {v, 0, 4}]; Plot[ MyLegendre // Evaluate, {x, -1, 1}, PlotLabels -> {"v=0", "v=1", "v=2", "v=3", "v=4"}] $\endgroup$

You need to reposition the labels

MyLegendre = Table[LegendreP[v, x], {v, 0, 4}]; 
Plot[MyLegendre, {x, -1, 1},
 Frame -> True, 
 PlotLabels -> 
  Placed[{"v=0", "v=1", "v=2", "v=3", "v=4"}, 
    {{Scaled[0.5], Above}, {Scaled[0.385], Above}}]]
