Re: Plot, Epilog, and Text


Bruce,

Your pattern for g includes w_Real, but in the plot you passed an Integer  
(3) in that position. You could pass 3.0 instead, or you can change the  
definition to

g[X_String, w_?NumericQ, f_] :=
  Text[Style[X, 12, Bold], {w, f /. {x -> w}}, {0, -2}]

or even

g[X_String, w_, f_] :=
  Text[Style[X, 12, Bold], {w, f /. {x -> w}}, {0, -2}]
