    You can enter fractions like this: \\([\)\\(\)frac{numerator}{denominator}\\(]\) e.g.: \\([\)\\(\)frac{4}{9}\\(]\) will produce:\[\frac{4}{9}\]

    you don't have to write frac in latex it would make less symbols

    We can also use {top \over bottom} as in {3\over 4} gives \({3\over 4}\).

    but it's very limited? with this you can write only one fraction and that's it? or am i missing something?

    Tomas: do you mean you can't do this with Mr.Maths suggestion?:\[\frac{x^2+3}{y-6}\]

    You can! \[{x^2+3x-1 \over {4x^2-5x \over 3-x} +2x-1}\]

    but its only fractions or more fractions inside fractions, for example can you make? \[5+\frac12\] don't write it as \(11\over2\) :P
