Hi,

I am just trying to learn how to use latex!

\sqrt{4}=2

\int {x}^{3 }dx

\int {x}^{3}dx

After looking at the preview this doesn't look correct. Can someone please help me out?

Why is the integral giving me an error? I wrote \int_{a}^{b}f(x) \, dx with {math} at the beginning and {/math} at the end? I DID use [] instead of {} - May 26th 2011, 08:28 AMTheEmptySet

Tip: if you want to display actual LaTeX code, use the noparse tags around the whole thing. Then you can avoid awkward circumlocutions such as "but without the space".
