I am starting this thread to help people learn LaTex and I will put it in with sticky topics

This web page is good for a lot of the basics.

http://www.personal.ceu.hu/tex/cookbook.html#inline

Don't include the dollar signs that surround every thing, they put LaTex into maths mode but the forum is in math mode all the time so don't use them.  I'm not sure if the double dollar signs might be useful - they are for display mode.

-----------------------------------------------------------

There are many LaTex info sites but many are not presented well and I have not found any that are both comprehensive and understandable.

Also remember that there are many different versions of LaTex.  The forum LaTex is by no means comprehensive.  The main irritation I have had with it so far is that it does not accept /align  I have not noticed anyone else aligning things either but if you work it out please let me know.

Thank you Alan,

This is where I want it.  As more bits and peices get added it would be good if it gets cleaned up into a neater thread but for now this is great.

I've discovered how to put labels on a summation sign correctly.  For example:

\begin{document}

Starting with:
$$\frac{3x+h}{x+h}$$

Limit as h tends to zero:
$$\lim_{h\rightarrow0}\frac{3x+h}{x+h}$$

\end{document}

produces

$$Starting with:$$\frac{3x+h}{x+h}$$Limit as h tends to zero:$$\lim_{h\rightarrow0}\frac{3x+h}{x+h}

However, if you leave out the begin{} and end{} and the $$signs you get (after ignoring the text and first expression):$$\lim_{h\rightarrow0}\frac{3x+h}{x+h}$$I don't know if you want this in this thread Melody. If not I'll delete it and create a separate thread. Apr 28, 2014 #2 +19 Best Answer Thank you Alan, This is where I want it.

What is @@LaTex Jul 27, 2014 #23 +6 Melody, how do I write a graph so I can write it in an answer or a question with @@LaTex? Jul 29, 2014 #24 +6 LaTex is a program for writing mathematical things. It is what we use for all the presentations shown above. If you would like to start learning you can start a new thread in the main part of the forum asking for some beginner lessons. Please don't post in here any more because this thread is just for Latex reference not for learning with member help if that makes sense. If anyone is really serious about learning, here is a good place to start https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTejunv6WZfG-b9a0o0OcVMRpIJIlcHhF This is where i got all my initial knowledge. Alan started here too. Jul 30, 2014 #25 +9 This message was sent to me by NinjaDevo via private message. I am copying it here because it will probably be of interest to other people as well. NINJA'S QUESTION: I was looking through those LaTeX videos you posted in the LaTeX thread. I was wondering though, what's the difference between beginning a document and an array? For example, I see in some of your posts you did "\begin{array}{rll}" What does this mean and what does the rll mean in the brackets? Thanks, ~Ninja MELODY'S ANSWER: There a many different versions of LaTex which is really annoying. I am still glad I started with the videos, although i have actually not studied all of them. I should, it would probably help a lot. When you write in Texmaker you have to enter the whole program, there are shortcuts to help you but you can still still see the whole thing. On any maths forum it is different. Some of it is pre-written so that you do not need to enter lines such as \begin{document} They have already been entered for you. array is the term used when you want to line up objects such as equal signs. There are a number of different types of arrays but this forum only seems to have the one. It does everything the others do it is just a little harder to use and to be honest i haven't totally worked it out yet. If i was going to wrtite a standard equation with the equal signs lined up then I woudl use I have added a litle equation solution to show you how it works \begin{array}{rll} note this must be ended with x-6&=&12\\ x&=&18 \end{array} or it will not work! Now array means you are lining things up. r stands for right, l for left and c for centre. The equal signs are going to line up. The first input is going to be right aligned against the first& The equal sign is pushed left so it butts up against the invisable first& Then the other side of the equation is pushed left as well to butt up against the second & There is always one more alignment command (l,r, or c) than the number of ampersands & used. Now let's see if my code works. \begin{array}{rll} x-6&=&12\\ x&=&18 \end{array} Good it worked well.  Does that help Ninja? Jul 30, 2014 #26 +9 Wow! That actually helped alot!

Question 1) I really need to know how to make a graph in @@LaTex, but I can't figure out how to make one. Can somebody help me out please? Question 2) Why do I have to use , \begindocument, and \enddocument in @@LaTex? Please help me. Thanks. Aug 9, 2014 #36 +11 Sorry Dragon I didn't see your last post when I posted mine - Does that make sense? Question 1) I really need to know how to make a graph in @@LaTex, but I can't figure out how to make one. Can somebody help me out please? I don't think that you can - you can make a table but not a graph. What did you want to graph and I will tell you how we would do it? Question 2) Why do I have to use , \begindocument, and \enddocument in @@LaTex? Please help me. Thanks. I explained in my last post. It allows you to escape maths mode which is the default mode for the forum. Look at my last post there is a lot more info there. You do not need to use \begin{document} or \end{document} in the forum. I think that you may have seen Alan use this? Alan writes his LaTex on his own computer in a program that he downloaded called Texmaker. This is where we both learned LaTex. He then copies the whole thing straight onto the forum. If you use Texmaker then you have to enter begin document etc or it won't work. In the forum that has already been done for you. So I think that these lines do nothing at all when you use LaTex in the forum. There does that answer your excellent questions Dragon? Aug 9, 2014 #37 +11 Well, yes. I meant table. So, how do I make a table in @@LaTex? (I always make a mistake when I say graph instead of table) Aug 11, 2014 #38 +6 Look in the LaTex thread. I'm pretty sure you will find the information that you need in there. Sorry - you are already in the LaTex thread. Try this post. http://web2.0calc.com/questions/latex#r21 Aug 12, 2014 #39 +11 Please show how to do summation symbol as i tried and it is not the same as elsewhere. Thanks.

Or any box for that matter. \fbox{\begin{minipage}{0.6cm}\hfill\vspace{0.6cm}\end{minipage}} \fbox{\begin{minipage}{0.6cm}\hfill\vspace{0.6cm}\end{minipage}} ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aug 18, 2014 #42 +3 LaTex Dragon's question also answers Stu's question. Question 2) Why do I have to use , \begindocument, and \enddocument in @@LaTex? Please help me. Thanks. You do not need to use any of this dragon. Not in this forum anyway. Alan and I do use sometimes. When writing in Latex you can be in maths mode or in non-maths mode. In this forum the default mode is maths mode. If you do not want this you can cancel it at the very beginning of your program by entering However, you do not need to do this. You can just work in maths mode which is what most people do. This symbol \ is called a backslash \\ means start a new line. This is not done automatically you have to 'tell the code to do it' with this command. One \ indicates a function is coming. Sometimes functions have 1 or more 'arguaments' these must be put in parentheses { } like \frac{1}{2} or \sqrt{49} or \quad If you want to display a sign you need to put \ because is a reserved key and so this will symolise that it is ONLY the symbol itself that you want. Now Dragon. Yes if you want to do something that has been demonstrated. Just copy the code and change little things. You will slowly gain understanding about what everything means. I hope that all this information helps. Aug 18, 2014 #43 0 Yes. It helps. But do I change the x and y part? Aug 21, 2014 #44 +6 Dragon - What x and y part? also can you continue this in a new thread on the forum please. This thread is intended more for information - not so much for questions. You can giveyour new thread a title something like LaTex help If you want to refer to something that I have written here maybe you could copy it over so I know what you are talking about. Aug 21, 2014 #45 0 I mean this. \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|c|} \hline x&1&2&3&4&5\\\hline f(x)&2&10&30&68&\\\hline So, can I make a Thread that says, @@LaTex Questions? Aug 23, 2014 #46 0 I posted the answer and I am waiting. Sep 2, 2014 #47 +6 Yes fine dragon. I only just saw this. You can ask questions on the forum, that is what it is for. I don't know that you have enough knowledge yet to answer other people's LaTex. (But you are welcome to try) I think you should concentrate on improving your own LaTex first.

Dec 11, 2014 #55 0 Sometimes I copy them from here and paste them in but mostly i type them all. :) I usually work the problems out and code them straight in at the same time. I often refer back to this thread to get the more complicated code that I want to use. This thread could really use cleaning up but for the moment it works for me. :) I am not sue how many other people use it - not many I think. LaTex is cool. It is fun to learn, fun to use, and it makes the answers (and questions) easier to read and easier to interprete.

ALIGN

This is very interesting Max, thanks for showing me.

I used to use align all the time but it did not work here -

There are many different versions of Latex - each one seems to have its own limitations and peculiarities. :)

You are right    IT DOES WORK!

It seems you cannot add any more latex after you finish the alignment.

That is a pity but most times it would be convenient enough just to close it and start a new latex insert.

You can use this with more than one alignment - you probably know that.  :)

\begin{align*}2x - 5y &=&  8&\qquad \mbox(1)

\begin{align*}2x - 5y &=& 8&\qquad \mbox(1) \\3x + 9y &=&-12&\qquad \mbox(2)\end{align*}

Now I need to remember to use this PS   I am sure your Mum is a very fine mathematician :))

On that reference site there is also a \dfrac{}{} used.

2-\dfrac{2}{1-\left(\cfrac{2}{2-\dfrac{2}{x^2}}\right)}

$$2-\frac{2}{1-\left(\frac{2}{2-\frac{2}{x^2}}\right)}\quad 2-\dfrac{2}{1-\left(\dfrac{2}{2-\dfrac{2}{x^2}}\right)}\quad 2-\cfrac{2}{1-\left(\cfrac{2}{2-\cfrac{2}{x^2}}\right)}\quad 2-\dfrac{2}{1-\left(\cfrac{2}{2-\dfrac{2}{x^2}}\right)}$$

GingerAle's LaTex in a box

\begin{array}{|lll|} \hline &(h-16t^2) - (h-16(t+1.6)^2) &=& 182ft&\\

&-16t^2+16 (t+1.6)^2&=&182\\ &51.2t+40.96&=&182\\

&51.2t&=&141.04\\

&t&=&2.7546875\\ \text { }\\

&16(2.7546875)^2 &=& 121.4 \text{ft above observation floor. }\\

&\dfrac{121.4}{13}& =& 9.3 \text{ Floors above observation floor. }\\

&14+9 &=& 23 \text { The bucket fell from the }23^{rd} \text {floor }\\

\hline \end{array}
