# Math Help - Creating 2 columns in latex document

1. ## Creating 2 columns in latex document

I'd like to create something that looks like the pdf document below. The only thing is, I don't think I can do 2 columns, as I would like normal text to go under that. I'm thinking of maybe a table, but I've never done a table before in LaTeX.

I think this might do the job. Could someone tell me what's wrong with the code, as it doesn't seem to be working:

\begin{tabular}{>{\raggedright}p{8.5cm}>{\centerin g}p{8.5cm}}
Title goes here

\begin{itemize}
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\end{itemize}
& Title goes here

\begin{itemize}
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\item Text goes here
\end{itemize}
\tabularnewline
\end{tabular}

2. To avoid the hell of LaTeX tables, you might try \begin{multicols}. You'll have to use the package, \usepackage{multicol}. In either case, though, Latex is funny about this stuff.

If you find you need to do it by tables, here's a good reference: Getting to Grips with Latex - Tables - Latex Tutorials by Andrew Roberts @ School of Computing, University of Leeds For my part, by looking at your code, I'm not sure what "{>{\raggedright} ..." is doing, and you need to use "\\" for line-breaks. I don't think it likes it when you double-space the code in the tabular environment.
