Does anyone know a way to typeset a long division in LaTeX? I'm particularly interested in:
[tex] \frac{1}{\cos x} = \frac{1}{1\frac{x^2}{2!}+\frac{x^4}{4!}\cdots} [/tex] Thanks

Hi thiago,
Use the following code. Use pdflatex for making the pdf file. documentclass{article} \begin{document} \Huge ${1\over{cosx}}= {1\over{1{x^2\over{2!}}+{x^4\over{4!}}.....}} $\\ \end{document} Gulumal

I tried that... but it gives exactly what I put down initially:
[tex] \frac{1}{\cos x} = \frac{1}{1\frac{x^2}{2!}+\frac{x^4}{4!}\cdots} [/tex] In fact, I've just figured it out. This goes in the preamble:

Hi.
You cannot use .eps files with \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx} but instead you need to use \usepackage[dvips]{graphicx} However, with this you cannot use .png or .jpg files. I usually take a screenshot (usally GeoGebra or Mathematica), save it as .png file and use the pdftexgraphicx package. Tell me if you have a better solution. I always make the conversion to pdf because couldn't make the .dvi file.

thank you for your reply. I am using latex and I'm using a feature called {gsml} which changes the format of the first page of every chapter. The problem is that the pdf document I'm writing starts from the 3rd page not from 1st page. Please can you help me with this??

Probably not, I'm not sure if I understand the problem...
If the problem if with page numbering, you can set it by \setcounter{page}{3}so the current page gets the number 3. If you want your {gsml} "be in effect" only from page 3 on, or you have 2 blank pages in the beginning, I don't know how to help.

[tex]\left( 1\frac{x^2}{2!}+\frac{x^4}{4!}\cdots \right)^{1}[/tex] or the uglier [tex]1 / \left( 1\frac{x^2}{2!}+\frac{x^4}{4!}\cdots \right)[/tex]
