Our forums use LaTeX for typesetting mathematical equation through MathJax, a Javascript-based engine that processes LaTeX code in posts into familiar expressions.

LaTeX is the standard language used by mathematicians, physicists, chemists, textbook authors, etc for typesetting mathematical expressions and equations.

Delimiting LaTeX code

For code to be rendered, you need to surround the code with special characters, known as delimiters. Our forums support the following delimiters:

• Inline delimiters - $latex your code...$
• Block delimiters - $$your code...$$

Examples in the comments. if I left out something, you are free to add in the comments.

How to write a quadratic equation using latex:

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

Will render as:

$latex ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ (@sytech)
 $latex x = \frac {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 -4ac}} {2a}$
Will render as: $latex x = \frac {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 -4ac}} {2a}$
