Just a couple of questions on how to type out problems.

  1. Aug 31, 2011 #1
    I meant to put a homework question here but i figured it out after i posted it.

    But I have another question to help me in the future is there an easier way to write less than or equal to and greater than or equal to?

    also how do you delete posts?

    Look at my signature file for special symbols. You get to your signature file by clicking on My PF tab at the top of your screen.

    To delete a post click on Edit post and choose to delete. This can be done if nobody has replied.

    Also, in the post composition window, click on the sigma symbol above the upper right corner of the composition box. That will open up the LaTeX editor for you.

    Woah! Latex EDITOR? I've just been memorizing script as I go...

    And as far as I've noticed, you can only delete your post within a certain interval of time.

    Hey, look at me, changin' mah font! I can't believe I never saw those little buttons....something about the forest for the trees... and yet, there was pride in memorizing the code....gone..gone..

    Yep. I just responded and deleted it, so if you don't see it, it worked. I don't see it.

    Apparently not. When I edit it I have the DELETE button option. I canceled the delete at the end because I didn't actually want to delete that post. But you can try deleting your post that I'm now responding to to check.
