$\frac{3}{4}$

Oh I got it now, thx! I'll try to write the whole thing now

If you type [TEX]\left(\frac{3a}{4}-b\right) [/TEX] you will get $\left(\frac{3a}{4}-b\right)$

On the toolbar you see the button $\boxed{\Sigma}$ that will give you [TEX] [/TEX] tags.

You need a backslash, not forward slash. Try \frac{3}{4}

How do I write "a*a" ?

5. ## Re: My english sets an early limit to my describtion, sorry

You could try "a \cdot a" or "a \times a" or even "a^2"...

6. ## Re: My english sets an early limit to my describtion, sorry

$\frac{3}{4}$( $\frac{4a^2}{a}$+ $\frac{ab}{3}$- $\frac{4ab}{3}$-b^2

7. ## Re: My english sets an early limit to my describtion, sorry

I forgot to wrap up with a ")", and the end was'nt right. But I'm improving, thx. My pc dies now, I have no charger, I hope to get more help from you later. Thank you so much for your patience!

I assume you mean \displaystyle \begin{align*} \frac{4a^2}{9} \end{align*}. Otherwise you are correct. Now collect your like terms.

Also, it's best to write your entire mathematical expression in the tex tags.

So now collect your like terms to simplify...

First, you have to start and end with [ t e x ] and [ \ t e x ] tags- without the spaces, which I put on so it would not be interpreted as "Latex" tags and so you could see them. Also you need to put the numerator and denominator in "braces", { }. [ t e x ]\frac{3}{4}[/ t e x] without the spaces gives $\frac{3}{4}$.

There is a Latex tutorial at Physicsforums FAQ

Ok I think I've got it, thx!

I'm really wasting your time
[TEX]\frac{3}{4} [/TEX] gives $\frac{3}{4}$

Look at the tool-bar the icon $\boxed{\Sigma}$ gives [TEX] [/TEX] the wrap.
