    How do I indicate or show square root sign, super script and sub script? How do I use latex in the forum?

    All of this is answered in our FAQ and HowTo.

    The short version:
    [noparse]√a12[/noparse]
    Inline ##\sqrt{a_1^2}##
    $$\sqrt{a_1^2}$$

    gives

    √a12
    Inline ##\sqrt{a_1^2}##
    $$\sqrt{a_1^2}$$
