Hi there!

Hello, this is my first post.

I found this place whilst searching for forums for math lovers . I read the rules in the intro to registration and figured I'd like it here.

I chose the name ln(x) because e is my favorite number and the logarithm is one of my favorite functions (It resembles a breaching whale, and whales are my favorite animal).

I hope to meet friends here, to teach others mathematics and learn some new mathematics as well.~

Re: Hi there!

Hi ln(x);

Welcome to the forum!

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: Hi there!

hi ln{x}

Welcome to the forum.

You could have called yourself 'e' then, and saved some typing.

The forum is tranferring to a new server and there's a spot of teething trouble with mathemathical formatting using Latex.

So I cannot show you my favorite equation.

Hopefully soon.

EDIT: post 8

Hi Bob

You can always make a picture on codecogs and link to it:

$\int_{t=1}^{x}\frac{1}{t}\ dt$

Re: Hi there!

hi Stefy

Assume I've got my Latex in codecogs and it is displaying correctly.

Hi Bob

Right-click on the image, click "copy image URL" and paste it between img tags.

Re: Hi there!

??

No copy image url option.

copy doesn't copy anything.

I've pasted the properties address here but it doesn't show the image.

EDIT:  It works with no spaces.

$e^{i\pi}+1=0$
