Yeah - that does look unpretty for sure. Let me see what I can find out about this - thanks!

Interesting. Looking fine in Safari, Chrome doesn't treat it quite right though. We'll ask around and see if there's a known issue.

More Latex Messiness in Chrome: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/501ae9c1e4b02742c0b247b4 I wonder what can be causing this???

Hm. I'm not seeing issues with that even in Chrome. Can you post a screenshot of how it's rendering for you?

I'm not getting the extreme messiness Hero seems to be getting, but I'm seeing a bit of wonkiness as well. Here, we can see the in-text is not aligning properly: b$$b$$b

In-line $$\LaTeX$$ is not a best way. It types the fractions small. $${-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} \over 2a}$$ That is in-line LaTeX. Hint: Use \Large to see the normal size of fractions that you see in $$\backslash [ \cdots \backslash ]$$

how do u get those fractions? i mean that horizontal line separating the numerator and denominator? i always end up using '/'

12. ParthKohli

@Vaidehi09 \frac{a}{b} would work fine.

13. Vaidehi09

@ParthKohli...that doesn't seem to work..:\

14. Hero

Try $$\text{$\frac{a}{b}$}$$

15. ParthKohli

Or $\backslash ( \text{\frac{a}{b}}\backslash)$If you want to do it in the same line.

16. Vaidehi09

oh got it! thanks a lot! @ParthKohli @Hero

Still having trouble with this to no avail :(

Yep, definitely have this on the list of issues we're looking at right now. We're working on the major overhaul right now (http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/5019a564e4b02742c0b14ecf) and we're trying to get the most substantial issues of that resolved (like forcing you to refresh, etc). Definitely keep this question open though and we'll be sure to address this too. Cheers!
