I'm writing some of my proofs up in french in order to practice the language and I have a few questions for any of you french speakers out there.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

First, what voice is generally used 'nous' or 'on'.

Second when I am telling the reader to perform this or that mathematical procedure, do I use the imperative or the infinitive?

Also if there are some other common mistakes anglophones make when writing math in french, please let me know, thanks! =].
