Re: Adding and Subtracting Polynomials17) should be Except there should be a minus sign between the two 2's..18) should be 19) should be I'm just here to get some help with an online math course I'm taking. #27 20120816 10:23:46
Re: Adding and Subtracting PolynomialsHi SlowlyFading! Notice that the \; causes the spaces in the LaTex output. The more you put, the wider the space. Help bobbym! Can you help us figure out what the problem is with the LaTex? Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make. #28 20120816 10:34:38
Re: Adding and Subtracting PolynomialsHi;
On 17 he has a . instead of a plus or a minus. Latex can not interpret it.
Same problem on 19. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #29 20120816 10:47:20
Re: Adding and Subtracting PolynomialsHi Bobby and noelevans, #19: Using a minus sign instead of the em dash gives: #17: #19: Composing in M$ Word without using a space on both sides of the minus sign displays correctly. Also, when typing directly into MIF's message box the display is the same with and without spaces before and after the plus and minus signs.

Re: Adding and Subtracting PolynomialsThanks all of you! Writing "pretty" math (two dimensional) is easier to read and grasp than LaTex (one dimensional). LaTex is like painting on many strips of paper and then stacking them to see what picture they make. #35 20120816 20:13:00

Re: Adding and Subtracting PolynomialsHi Bob;
I killed those flies about a month ago. Yes, I got both of them. The question is, to dot or not to dot. Post #37 shows an actual, in living color snapshot of my screen. The dot according to my computer is a real phenomena and not an apparition.
It is true that my dopamine and/or serotonin levels have been dropping over the last few months but why would that make my computer see dots? In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Adding and Subtracting Polynomials
I did not think of that. I will have it hum a pleasant tune while displaying an aquarium screensaver. That should calm it down. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Adding and Subtracting PolynomialsNo, that is what would cqlm you down. I think it needs a circuit masaage.
