A system named LaTeX is available in the forum, to generate math symbols and formatting. Using LaTeX requires learning some programming codes and syntax. Tutorials and examples are available on the Internet; some references and links appear below. (As an alternative to LaTeX, the purplemath site explains on four pages how to format math expressions using plain text, and this other site offers math symbols for copy-and-paste.)

⚠️ Also, be forewarned: There are different implementations of LaTeX on the Internet; not everything you might see elsewhere works the same way here. (This forum currently receives LaTeX rendering from katex.org.)

At this site, each line (or set of lines) of LaTeX coding must be enclosed within \(\displaystyle \text{[te}\text{x]}\) and \(\displaystyle \text{[/te}\text{x]}\) tags or within \(\displaystyle \text{[ma}\text{th]}\) and \(\displaystyle \text{[/ma}\text{th]}\) tags or within \͏[ and \͏] tags. Each of those three tag options will default to display style. If you would like to force inline style, instead, then use tags \͏( and \͏) or \(\displaystyle \text{[ima}\text{th]}\) and \(\displaystyle \text{[/ima}\text{th]}\) or $$ and $$.

When composing your post, you may type opening and closing tags of your choice, or you may click the f(x) toolbar icon to open a dialog box in which you may select options and type your code. The dialog box provides a LaTeX preview, for checking entries.

If you would like to view specific LaTeX coding posted in this forum, then click the post's reply button.


Here's an example of LaTeX:

\cos\bigg( \frac{\pi}{3} \bigg) \cdot \int_{a}^{b} \frac{3x^{3} + 7x - 10}{\sqrt[3]{x + 4}} \; \text{dx}​

[math]\text{cos}\bigg(\frac{\pi}{3}\bigg) \cdot \int_{a}^{b} \frac{3x^{3} + 7x - 10}{\sqrt[3]{x + 4}} \; \text{dx}[/math]

\frac{A}{B} = C^{2} \quad \quad \sqrt{x^2} = |x|​

[math]\frac{A}{B} = C^{2} \quad \quad \sqrt{x^2} = |x|[/math]

\lim_{x\to\infty} f(x)​

[math]\lim_{x\to\infty} f(x)[/math]

\sqrt{y} = x^2 + bx + \bigg( \frac{b}{2} \bigg)^2​

[math]\sqrt{y} = x^2 + bx + \bigg( \frac{b}{2} \bigg)^2[/math]
