Shashank told you how to do it in matplotlib (which comes with Sage) - matplotlib allows you a lot of control over your plots, but as you can see, it involves a fair bit of boilerplate compared to Sage's plotting.

If you want to add a formula to a Sage plot, then you can just use latex inside dollar signs, like you would in a .tex document:

```
text(r"Here's a formula $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}$ and some text",(1,2))
```

Here the `r"`

is necessary due to all the slashes in the stringÂ–if you don't include the `r`

then you'll have to escape each of the slashes (check out the python String documentation for more info on that).
