asnaseer Group Title How to show a cancellation line - e.g. in this equation: x = 3 * 4 / 3 you may want to show the 3's being cancelled out. 2 years ago 2 years ago

You can add a cancellation strike-through line to anything using \cancel{...}. e.g.: \$$[$$x=3*\frac{4}{3}=\cancel{3}*\frac{4}{\cancel{3}}=4\$$]$$ will produce:$x=3*\frac{4}{3}=\cancel{3}*\frac{4}{\cancel{3}}=4$

$$\huge\times$$ looks better than $$\huge *$$ I think.

3. asnaseer

just for Mr.Math, the * has been replaced with \times:$x=3\times\frac{4}{3}=\cancel{3}\times\frac{4}{\cancel{3}}=4$

Haha thanks :-)
