Dear Amari

Why not use legend?

y<- c(1:100)
x1<-seq(0.1,10, by=0.1)
x2<-seq(0.5,50,by=0.5)
mydata<- data.frame( y=y, x1=x1, x2=x2) matplot(mydata, type = "l" ,xlab="Time",ylab="MSE ", col = 1:3, lty = 1:3) legend(10,90,c("line1", "line2", "line3"), col = 1:3, lty = 1:3)

You can work with text to place any text within the plot See ?legend ?text

Regards,

Christoph

At the below , it follows some lines, only as an example that you could try please, if it is possible. I really thanks for your attention.
