Hi Jose,

This sounds very much like a homework question.  In any case, I'm
surprised that online help wasn't useful, particularly since section
2.10.3 answers your question.

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}];
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}, PlotStyle -> Dashing[{.01, .01}]];
Plot[Sin[x], {x,
     0, Pi}, PlotStyle -> Dashing[{.01, .01}],
         FrameTicks -> {PiScale, Automatic, None, None}];
Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0,
       Pi}, PlotStyle -> {Dashing[{.01, .01}], Thickness[.007], Red}, 
          FrameTicks -> {PiScale, Automatic, None, None}];
