I'm not very familiar with the Desmos Calculator, but I tried using it recently, to produce a graph.

Desmos seems unable to accept input by pasting math expressions into the new-function field. That seems wrong, to me (i.e., a major disadvantage). I'm wondering whether I'm doing it incorrectly.

EG: 1/15*x^10

If I paste that text, Desmos interprets it as: 1/15*x1*0

So, I tried: 1/15*x^(10)

Desmos interprets it as: 1/15*x(*10) and gives me the warning: Expected '(' to match ')'

I've also experienced a warning (paraphrased): Implicit multiplication is confusing, use asterisks. I had used asterisks, and there wasn't any implicit multiplication.

Can anybody confirm whether Desmos accepts input by pasting or provide the correct method to do so? I couldn't find the topic in their help files, and I'm not eager to complete two screens of personal information just to submit a simple inquiry.

You can paste expressions that follow LaTeX markup conventions...for example try pasting:

y=\frac{x^{10}}{15}
