# Plotting point when coordinate involves symbolic and numerical values

Consider the following single piece of code:

```
point([real_part(zeta(I))+1,0])
```

When trying to compile it, I get the following error message:

```
Error in lines 1-1
Traceback (most recent call last):

TypeError: 'sage.symbolic.expression.Expression' object does not support indexing
```

Is there some simple way to fix this?

Interesting note: I have played around with this error, and it is very unclear to me when it does or doesn't appear. Here are some examples of when the error *does* appear (as far as I've checked, the traceback is always the same):

```
point([real_part(zeta(I))+1,0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))*2,0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))+real_part(zeta(I)),0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))/2,0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))-real_part(zeta(2*I)),0])
```

Here are some examples where it *doesn't* appear:

```
point([real_part(zeta(I))+0,0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))*1,0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))*real_part(zeta(I)),0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))+real_part(zeta(2*I)),0])
point([real_part(zeta(I))+imag_part(zeta(I)),0])
```

(edit: the error doesn't seem to ever occur if we give the zeta function a real argument)

I'd be interested if someone figured out under what conditions the error appears or not, because I fail to see any pattern. Thank you in advance.
