    \sum=mc^2

    a^2+b^2=c^2

    \frac{\pi^2-7}{3x+2}=28

    \sqrt{5x^3-2x+4}

    \left(\begin{array}{cccc}1&0&1&1\\0&1&1&1\\1&1&1&1  \\0&1&0&1\end{array}\right)

    if you want spaces then use \, or ~

    there are many ways to do that. i always use the "array function" --if that's what it's called.

    the code \left( \begin{array}{ccc} a & b & c \\ d & e & f \\ g & h & i \end{array} \right)

    yields

    \left( \begin{array}{ccc} a & b & c \\ d & e & f \\ g & h & i \end{array} \right)

    \frac{8x^2-3x+5}{7x+4}=4x^3

    This is awesome

    \sqrt[3]{27x^3}\Longrightarrow3x

    (3x-8y)(2x^2-4xy+14y^2)\Longrightarrow Anyone know if I solved this correctly?

    My answer is 6x^3+4x^2y+74xy^2-112y^3

    Wow I'm bored

    Heres another question:

    \left(\begin{array}{ccc}5&3&9\\3&0&7\\8&2&1\end{ar  ray}\right) Solve the following matrix without a calculator

    The steps i took to get my answer were as follows:

    5\left(\begin{array}{cc}0&7\\2&1\end{array}\right)
    -3\left(\begin{array}{cc}3&7\\8&1\end{array}\right)
    9\left(\begin{array}{cc}3&0\\8&2\end{array}\right)

    From there i got 5(-14)-3(-53)+9(6) Which led me to my answer of 143

    Not positive if this is right. If it is not correct, can you post the steps you took to get the answer so I can see what I did wrong. Thanks.

    well, technically no. the number of c's tells you the number of columns, however, the letter c actually means to center align here. i could have put rrr (right align all columns) or lll (left align all columns)

    you are correct, that is the determinant. you used the cofactor expansion method here, one of several methods to finding determinants of nxn matrices. there is another method you could have used to confirm your answer (it only works for 3x3 matrices) however, it's hard to describe the process in words, so just wait until your professor teaches you

    Frankly I see no reason to learn any method for computing determinants other than the cofactor method. In order to do the 3 x 3 formula (the one where you put numbers beside the matrix and multiply down the columns) or any other you essentially have to learn a formula. And it doesn't generalize well to larger matrices. I prefer to learn the general method and leave it at that.

    Mmm... I'd ask to a Moderator or someone else if he may move the off-topic posts.

    The aim of this topic, it's about testing LaTeX codes, and no solving problems about Matrix - Linear Algebra and all that stuff.

    i agree

    but i'm always one for knowing several ways to do the same thing.

    What are you doing lad? Dont put spaces between \ and frac and the brackets.

    Simply: \frac{1}{x}
