    LaTeX is like a language. A computer based language which allows us to post the equations in a good and suitable format. x^2/ 4 does not look good while : \(\cfrac{x^2}{4}\) looks good. Similarly , if we are having long equations : x^2 + 3x + 9 -x^3 /2 I can write the same as : \(x^2 +3x + 9 -\cfrac{x^3}{2}\) It also allows you to post some greetings , texts . Suppose you want to greet a person happy birthday, you will write : Happy Birthday! But if I write the same as : \(\color{blue}{\cal{Happy} \space { Birthday!}} \ddot \smile \) It looks better. Basically , LaTeX is used for equations only, though many of the users use it as for textx greetings also. You can also write them in different sizes : \(\begin{array}{} \tiny \textbf {hi}\\ \scriptsize \textbf {hi}\\ \small \textbf {hi}\\ \textbf {hi}\\ \large \textbf {hi}\\ \Large \textbf {hi}\\ \LARGE \textbf {hi}\\ \huge \textbf {hi}\\ \Huge \textbf {hi}\\ \end{array}\) You can also use different colours to make LaTeX look beautiful . `\color{colorname}` Like : `\(\color{blue}{\textbf {hi}}\) ` \(\color{blue}{\textbf {hi}}\)
