Can't get fractions to work on this website.
Hi there,

I can't get fractions to display, I've been using the math commands in square brackets. I've had no problems with other commands such as $(x>0)$.

But no luck with fractions, any tips?

Thanks,

Shayne.

use

\frac{1}{2}

$\frac{1}{2}$

You should be using tex tags not math due to technical difficulties.

$$\left\lfloor \frac{34}{5} \right\rfloor$$ gives $\left\lfloor \frac{34}{5} \right\rfloor$

Thanks to both of you, the tex commands work perfectly.
