## asnaseer 3 years ago How to write fractions.

1. asnaseer

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

2. myininaya

i don't get something asaseer how do you write what we are suppose to type without it showing in latex

3. asnaseer

I'll show you in the OS Feedback chat window

4. myininaya

ok

5. myininaya

\$\\[ \frac{4}{9} \$ \\]

6. asnaseer

too many backslashes :)

7. myininaya

\$$[$$\$$frac$${4}{9}\$$]$$

8. myininaya

\$$[$$\$$frac$${4}{9}\$$]$$ wow that is a lot of extra symbols

9. asnaseer

sure is - but worth it when trying to teach :)

10. myininaya

thanks you are super! :)

11. asnaseer

12. Tomas.A

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

13. aroub

I've always wanted to know how to write fractions! Test : $\frac{5}{6}$

14. aroub

Cool! Thankss :D

15. asnaseer

16. karangajwani

\frac{$\Pi \epsilon \iota \iota \sigma$

17. Mr.Math

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

18. asnaseer

neat! - I didn't know that.

19. Tomas.A

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

20. asnaseer

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

21. asnaseer

Looks like you can:${x^2+3\over y-6}$

22. Mr.Math

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

23. asnaseer

brilliant! this is going to save me a lot of typing - thanks again Mr.Maths - maybe you should be renamed to Mr.Latex for this group? :D

24. Mr.Math

Lol, I'm not that good with Latex. I learned few things from your posts today, thank YOU! ;-)

25. asnaseer

always a pleasure doing business with you Mr.Latex :)

26. Mr.Math

Haha, The pleasure is all mine Mr.Have-it-all :)

27. asnaseer

lol! :D

28. Tomas.A

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

29. Mr.Math

5+{1\over 2}?

30. Tomas.A

ah you can use {} inside

31. Mr.Math

Obviously :P

32. aroub

This is cool! :) Btw, can you write fractions using the equation box?

33. Tomas.A

yes if you type it in equation editor by hand but without \ :D

34. aroub

'box' lol sorry :P Oh okay! Thank youu :D

35. Tomas.A

i didn't notice that you called it box but i think it's ok lol

36. aroub

Yeah..Yeah..It's okay! lol :D

@asnaseer there's another one - a \over b :)
