In a recent post to MHF I tried to form the sum + only with the second set of subscripts equaling 7

However Latex always returned an error for all integer subscipts greater than 2

Can anyone please help

Using [tex], it will not support any expression longer than

We can produce the terms separately: .[tex]c_5[/tex] .

. . but this is very inefficient.

I recommend using [tex] tags.

[tex]c_1,c_2,c_3,c_4,\hdots[/tex] .

Hello Soroban,

Thanks for your help - later I will try to learn how to use [tex] tags

[tex]r_{8}[/tex] .

[tex]r_2[/tex] .

[tex]r_3[/tex] .

[tex]r_4[/tex] .

[tex]r_5[/tex] .

Interesting . . . [tex] doesn't like subscripts greater than 4.

It's picky with subscripted letters too:

[tex]r_n[/tex] .

[tex]r_k[/tex] .

[tex]r_w[/tex] .

My theory is that the [tex] compiler, in its present debilitated state, can only render formulae that it has at an earlier time (before its troubles started) stored in some library of previous requests.
