    \[3.626^(x+3)\] It appears to have fallen off.

    I mean that the exponent has fallen off, look closely at the exponent in the equation.

    you needed { } around the exponent

    Ahh, is there somewhere that tells me the rules for the equations then? Like a little help bar that you can click? I'm not interested in becoming a programmer, just interested in using the UI for posting equations.

    you don't have to be a programmer to learn latex

    \[43^{44+x}\] you can actually do this with out knowing latex just use equation editor below

    You don't have to be a biologist to know that cells translate RNA into proteins, however...

    I'm just saying it would be nice if it was more user friendly.

    yes that is why i said you can use the equation editor below i said you don't have to know latex to use it

    hey kainui you can also use the drawing tool instead if you don't want to use the equation editor

    at the beginning it's hard but later it's much more faster than playing with equation editor

    Kainui—are you having issues with the equation editor? It's kind of our answer to the sometimes-weirdness of LaTeX syntax.

    Yeah, I was having difficulty with the equation editor. It's just not entirely intuitive. It would be nice to be able to type in x^(x+7) and have the whole (x+7) appear up in the exponent instead of just the first parenthesis and the rest of the exponent has fallen down with the rest of the equation as though it's not. I know it might seem subtle, but I see it happen all the time and it's also annoying to use. You can "help" me by directing me to learn LaTeX syntax but you can't direct every confused algebra student struggling with exponents to it who start posting problems that have now become skewed and compounds the problem.

    I actually tried to help you by pointing you to the equation editor, which correctly wraps exponent sections in curly braces for you ;) I get your frustration, but that particular example is one where you're asking for the equation system to guess what you mean, since you lead the exponent with a 2. It's impossible to know, equation editor or not, which of the two variants is meant, without explicit clarification from the poster.
