Use Evaluate as stated in the on-line help for Plot. Plot[Evaluate[Table[t^c,{c,1,2}]],{t,0.5,1.2}]; Bob Hanlon In article <c527dc$dtu$1 at smc.vnet.net>, chamster at home.se (Konrad Den Ende) wrote: << I started Mathematica and went: Plot[ Table[t^c, {c, 1, 2}], {t,0.5, 1.2} ] but it didn't like it. So i computed Table[t^c, {c, 1, 4}] explicitly in an other cell and then pasted the result into the expression as follows Plot[ {t,t^2}, {t,0.5, 1.2} ] and then it went well. So i have two wonderings. a) How come there's a difference?! b) How do i make Mathematica accept what i try to do?
