Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Hi mandy here. Is this right 2 + 2 = 4 if not the right place? Where should I have put it then?

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

hi Mandy

No that's not right.

This is what I want to see:



The sum is inside Latex command brackets like this:

Code:

[math]2 + 2 = 4[/math]

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Still not right.  It has to be square brackets.  On my keyboard they are next to letter P.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Yes it is.  Hurray!  smile

Now for a sum:

Code:

[math]\frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{4}[/math]

I've got to go out for about an hour but you can carry on practising with some that you make up for yourself.  I'll take a look when I get back.

Re: Mandy Jane's Corner

Have a look at what came out in post 442.  It isn't quite right is it?

Latex can be very fussy about spaces in the wrong places.

You can edit a post.  Picture below shows what to click.

Then you click submit again to send the new version.

Then post another reply because new posts make a beep on my computer so I'll know you've done it.

Just one     [math      at the start and    [\math]      at the end.

I suggest you click on the Math button to save time.  (see picture)
