Re: what is wrong with this plot?


I get a traditional square root and fraction for all of these.

$Version

5.2 for Mac OS X (June 20, 2005)

Plot[x^2,{x,0,10},Epilog->
      {Text[DisplayForm@ToBoxes[Sqrt[23]/4],{5,50}]}];

Plot[x^2,{x,0,10},Epilog->
      {Text[Sqrt[23]/4,{5,50}]}];

Plot[x^2,{x,0,10},Epilog->
      {Text[TraditionalForm[Sqrt[23]/4],{5,50}]}];
