Hey,
I know that if you punch the "E" above when you post it will wrap math tags around what you're inserting. How do I write the square root correctly and how do i do the division symbol if I were to do fractions?
Thanks!
Yes, it is a backslash in front of the frac command.
\frac{Numerator}{Denominator} gives $\displaystyle \frac{\textrm{Numerator}}{
\textrm{Denominator}}$
E.g. \frac{1}{2} gives $\displaystyle \frac{1}{2}$.
The backslash is usually located above the enter key.
The radical symbol is given by
sqrt{Something}
which gives
$\displaystyle \sqrt{\textrm{Something}}$.
E.g. \sqrt{2} gives $\displaystyle \sqrt{2}$.
If you want a higher root, like a cube root, then you'd put
sqrt[n]{Something}
to gives
$\displaystyle \sqrt[n]{\textrm{Something}}$.
E.g. \sqrt[3]{4} gives $\displaystyle \sqrt[3]{4}$.
