When posting multiple, consecutive lines of LaTex, you only need to invoke LaTeX once. That is, you may insert all lines within a single set of [͏tex] and [͏/tex] tags, IF you end each line with \\

For double-spacing, end a blank line with \;\\

Here's an example. Both of the following yield the same output.

[͏tex]x^2 + (y - x^{2/3})^2 = 5\\

\;\\

(y - x^{2/3})^2 = 5 - x^2\\

\;\\

\sqrt{(y - x^{2/3})^2} = \sqrt{5 - x^2}\\

\;\\

y - x^{2/3} = \pm\sqrt{5 - x^2}\\

\;\\

y = \pm\sqrt{5 - x^2} + x^{2/3}[͏/tex]

[͏tex]x^2 + (y - x^{2/3})^2 = 5[͏/tex]

[͏tex](y - x^{2/3})^2 = 5 - x^2[͏/tex]

[͏tex]\sqrt{(y - x^{2/3})^2} = \sqrt{5 - x^2}[͏/tex]

[͏tex]y - x^{2/3} = \pm\sqrt{5 - x^2}[͏/tex]

[͏tex]y = \pm\sqrt{5 - x^2} + x^{2/3}[͏/tex]
