Could you give an example in Latex?

    I would like an example in Latex of a product with indices n=1 to N for bN, all minus 1, finally equal to bZ. I have not been able to find the original Latex tutorials.

    Have a look at [thread=8997]Introducing LaTeX Math Typesetting[/thread].

    In the meantime, do you mean
    [tex] b_Z = \prod_{n=1}^N (b_n - 1)[/tex]

    I doubt it's what you want, but it is hard to parse the English description.

    You did well to decipher my description, excepting that the "-1" would appear outside of the product. Thank you for cheering me up.
