Unformatted text preview: enclose math symbols by [tex]. . . . . . . . . [/tex] . For instance [tex]x^2\sqrt{x}[\tex] will produce x 2 x . If you want to find out how a math formula was input by another user, click on the messages quote button! For those of you who know L A T E X: [tex]. . . [/tex] is equivalent to $...$ . Thus you cannot use $, $$, \[, \] . Avoid \begin{...}...\end{...} , etc. All mathematical symbols, but only a small subset of L A T E X- commands will work on our CyberBoard. A L A T E X crash-course. Special characters. The following symbols have special meaning in L A T E X: # $ % _ { } ~ ^ \ You can print the first seven of these by using \# \$ \% \_ \{ \} . Lines and Text. \\ starts a new line, \ includes a space, \mbox{...} includes text. Sub- and Superscripts. x^2 produces x 2 , x_{2n} produces x 2 n . Here is another example: \log_{5} 25=2 gives log 5 25 = 2. Fractions. Use \frac to display fractions. Example: \frac{\pi^2}{6} gives 2 6 . Roots. Use \sqrt . For instance, \sqrt{a^2+b^2} produces a 2 + b 2 . You can also get other roots: \sqrt[3]{2} yields 3 2....
