  1. Jan 27, 2010 #1
    I'm not sure if ii'm asking this question on the right forum but how do i put a neat equation into here to ask a question instead, for example, 4+x^3/2. How do i put that into a neat equaiton like you would find in a textbook? Thanks.

    Hi Cornraker! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    Either use the X2 tag just above the Reply box …


    or type [noparse][tex] before and [/tex] after … [tex]4+x^{3/2}[/tex][/noparse] :wink:

    (and bookmark http://www.physics.udel.edu/~dubois/lshort2e/node61.html#SECTION008100000000000000000" [Broken] for some more symbols)
