Practice latex

    [tex]y_2 = y_1 * \int^t ( 1/y_1^2(s) * exp(- integral[.. to (s)]( p_1(z)dz)))[/tex]
    is there a page on this site on how to make this crap work?

    Click "quote" to see what I did.
    Be sure not to use the wrong slash. You need / in the last tex-bracket, and no slash in the first.

    That post is in need of some updates. I wrote some comments about that in this post. The best way to learn is however to do what micromass suggested: Just hit the quote button next to a post with latex, to see how they did it.

    Also if you're running Mac OS X, there is a cool piece of software that does exactly this, its called "LatexIt" [it is also very useful when composing texts with mathematical expressions].

    Also, right clicking on the LaTeX image and selecting Show Source can help.
