My first attempt at TeX:\begin{equation}

\varphi = 1 + \cfrac{1}{1

+ \cfrac{1}{1

+ \cfrac{1}{1

+ \cfrac{1}{1 + \ddots

} } } }

\end{equation}Dang, this is easy!

Trying it here too: \begin{equation}x_1=x_0+vt+\frac{1}{2}at^2\end{equation}

And more text.

and how about (a^2+b_2) Does that work?

Hello,

How do I enter equations using TeX? Shouldn't it be as simple as

[tex]

a=1

[/tex]

Thanks

+1 I don't know how to properly copy or insert Latex into forum posts.

Perhaps this could be described and added as a sticky to the top of this test forum?

Inline \(\LaTeX\)

Code:

`\( your equation here \)`

Displayed \(\LaTeX\)

Code:

`\[ your equation here \]`

Hint: If you see a posting with nifty TeX in it, and want to see how they did it, just click the Quote button, take a peek at the TeX code, then press Back on your browser. Sorta like learning programming by reading other people's programs, which I'll bet we've all done.

To view someone else's TeX code, you can also right-click on the math and choose to show the math as TeX commands.

\(\LaTeX\) in general can be worth learning if you have reason to produce complicated documents with lots of cross-references, bibliography citations, index entries, figures, etc.

You may also use

Daum which is both available online and as a Chrome add on.

\(E^2-p^2c^2=m^2c^4\)

\[E^2-p^2c^2=m^2c^4\]

\[f(x)=\begin{cases}

0,\quad -1\le x<-0,5,\\

1,\quad -0,5<x<0,5,\\

0,\quad 0,5<x\le 1.

\end{cases}\]

Interesting this works here, but not some other places on the forum... Edit.. Ah, it did go haywire after editing again.

\( test^{latex} \)

... Edit2 : Solved it relates to Quick Edit vs Full Edit functionality.

Maybe you put the TeX code as 'formatted code'?

It is the quickedit vs full edit thing. I assume it is only a refressing "error" as I do not see it correctly at first, but I assume that others do see it correctly since they just loaded the page.
