## How do I type nice looking Maths formulas on Merspi?

How do I type nice looking Maths formulas on Merspi?

Example #1: ax^2 + bx + c = 0

Answer: Place a double dollar sign (\$) at both the beginning and the end of the formula and ensure that the formula is on a new separate line (not in-line with another paragraph).

E.g: $$ax^2 + bx + c = 0$$

This is my formula:

$$ax^2 + bx + c = 0$$

Example #2: Fractions

Answer: To display fractions, we use the same double dollar sign at the beginning and end of the formula on a new line. The fraction code is \frac{a}{b} where a is the number on the top and b is the number on the bottom.

E.g: $$\frac{a}{b}$$

This is a fraction:

$$\frac{a}{b}$$

Example #3: Functions f(x) notation

How do you display a nice looking f(x) before your formula? Simple. Let's take the example in Example #1 and add f(x) = to the beginning.

Code: $$f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c$$

This would display as:

$$f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c$$

Hope that helps.
