## asnaseer 3 years ago How to enter a simple equation using $$\LaTeX$$.

1. asnaseer

You either use the Equation editor by clicking on the "$$\Sigma$$ Equation" button at the bottom left of the reply area or you can type it in manually. $$\boldsymbol{\underline{\text{Manual Entry}}}$$ Equations are embedded between a pair of escaped square brackets. So an equation starts with \$$[$$ and ends with \$$]$$ You enter your equation using $$\LaTeX$$ between these square brackets. As an example suppose you wanted to enter a quadratic equation. You would type as follows: Here is an example quadratic equation:\$$[$$ax^2+bx+c=0\$$]$$ The text above would get rendered as follows: Here is an example quadratic equation:$ax^2+bx+c=0$

This site makes use of MathJax. You can find more documentation on the MathJax $$\LaTeX$$ support here: http://www.mathjax.org/docs/1.1/tex.html
