    Exclamation Use [tex] and [/tex] tags NOT [math] and [/math] tags for latex.

    Read the post title.

    This is due to some technical issues recently experienced by MHF.

    Thanks for taking the initiative to make this thread. I think I will make a forum wide announcement regarding this.

    EDIT: Forum-wide announcement has been made.

    Might also be useful to mention that the [tex][/tex] environment doesn't like "returns" or "enters" or "carriage returns" or "line feeds" in its code, unlike regular LaTeX. That's what gives you those annoying <br> symbols in the result. Example:

    [TEX]
    \int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-x^{2}}\,dx=\sqrt{\pi}
    [/TEX]

    yields

    <br />
\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-x^{2}}\,dx=\sqrt{\pi}.<br />


    But

    [TEX]\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-x^{2}}\,dx=\sqrt{\pi}[/TEX] yields

    \int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-x^{2}}\,dx=\sqrt{\pi}.

    I just noticed that in one of the posts made here: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...ms-180257.html

    It may have to do with the way it is interpreted by the site that I'm using to power the [tex] brackets...I'll look into this soon.

    What do you mean by "larger"?
    Is this not large enough \sum\limits_{k = 1}^{10} {x^k }~?

    Only put your equations in tex tags, not plain text.

    sorry but I can't see the difference in your title. Should it be  and NOT [tex] and [\tex]?

    Another way:
    [tex]3x^2 + 4ix + 5 < 0,~i^2 = -1[/tex]

    3x^2 + 4ix + 5 < 0,~i^2 = -1

    Just a reminder for those who already have MathType -- you can use it here on MHF, and it formats the math properly. We have instructions on our website describing how to do that.
