I've seen people in the homework help forum type mathematical statements such as fractions, exponents, integrals, etc. Anyone know how I can do this? Thanks.

You can search these forums for explanations of latex use. If you click on the graphics, you should see the code for the graphic.

How do I type mathematical statements?
eliminate * when using code
Start with the [*tex] statement then when you are done type [*/tex] for example [*tex] 5x=3+2 [*/tex] equals [tex] 5x=3+2 [/tex] for fractions do foward slash {num}{denom} so 5/3 equals [*tex] \frac{5}{3} [/*tex] [tex] \frac{5}{3} [/tex] {}are used to group terms for example \sqrt{25} the \ is to let the code know ur typing out something for that translates to a symbol \pi [tex] \pi [/tex] \gamma [tex] \gamma [/tex] if you were to do something to a power and it have more than one term or subscript you would want to use brackets otherwise this will happen e^ip [tex] e^i5 [/tex] e^{ip} [tex] e^{i5} [/tex]

That was meant to be a quick lesson for a full understanding go to the latex thread under general physics and just click on peoples latex code and teach yourself the code.
