I'm just going to try enclosing the quadratic formula in dollar signs and see if that helps.

If if helps for me, which I think in might, does it cause display problems for other people?

Let me know.

\(x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \qquad \text{No dollar signs}\\ \)

\($x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \qquad \text{Added dollar signs}$ \)

I have also discoverend that I do not need to go into LaTex box to do this, I can just type it straight in!

$x=\frac{1}{2}$ this is just typed straight in, now I am going to see what happens.

It worked perfectly!!

I think I have found the problem! Well maybe anyway,

I had a **'Tex all things' extension** on my Google Chrome browser.

I went looking for it when I realised that normal articles were being interpreted as LaTex!

Heavens only knows why that was there, but I am already thinking about how I might make use of it in the future!

I Have disabled it and I think/hope the problem is solved!

Hi Hectictar,

My son was laying the pavers around the pool. I was trying to help him with the layout.

I did this in Geogebra but it really needed to be done in a CAD program.

I learned how to use Geogebra a little better while i did it though.

The pavers turned out to be quite different in size so it was not directly usable but I did discover some some layout problems in the corners which I think help in the planning.

Ultimately he worked it out on the ground as he went. It came up really good too. :)

Oh, I just used this pic because it was handy, not for any other reason :)
