how to write summation (complete with the limits thing)
`\(\sum_{a}^{b}\)` will give u \(\sum_{a}^{b}\)
see satellite's comments http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/507e8b8be4b0599919841e26
\[\sum_{a = 1}^{\infty}a\]
And if you wanna write it inline, then use \limits.\(\sum \limits_{a = 1}^{\infty}a\)
@hartnn The correct code for inline is given below: ``` \(\sum \limits_{a}^{b}\) ```
you can also use \displaystyle in from of it so \displaystyle\sum_{i=1}^n gives \[\displaystyle\sum_{i+1}^n\] It also works for \lim, \prod etc.
\[\displaystyle \lim_{h\to 0} \] \displaystyle\lim_{h\to 0}
