$6+/-2\sqrt{3}\div4$

Wait what? 6 divded by negative 2$\sqrt{3}$ divided by 4?

3. nowhereman

I guess it should be $\frac{6\pm 2\sqrt{3}}{4}$, but what is the question?

4. anonymous

$6/4 = 3/2$ so therefore it's$[3 + or - \sqrt{3}]\div 2$

5. nowhereman

ingenious

6. anonymous

Nowhereman: how'd you write the equation for that fraction? I've not managed to figure out how to do it?

7. nowhereman

It's latex. You can use the formula editor by clicking on Equation, or just put the latex code inside \ [ and \ ]: \frac{6 \pm 2\sqrt{3}}{4}

oh! awsome, thanks. I didn't realize this was latex. I've been learning the syntax for the equation editor so I don't have to click the button and find the symbols I want, but I didn't realize it was standard latex. cool.
