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.
