I have read through the information on here but can't find a part that allows me to practice latex, could somebody please advise me
Thanks
David
You can use this topic to test any latex learnt from the stickies. It's how I learnt it
From [tex]e^(2x+1)[/tex] to [tex]\sqrt{\dfrac{\sin^3 \theta -1}{\lambda}}[/tex]
edit: @Amer - you can wrap tex in noparse tags (used as you do with normal tags) to prevent it rendering
[tex]e^(2x+1)[tex]\sqrt(\dfrac(\sin^3\theta-1)(\lambda))[\tex]
I am still confused, please give me an example of how you would input a real maths example, such as;
2/3 + 1/6 = ?
1 / 3/4 = 7/4 + 3/8
The second one above is 1 x 4 + 3 = 7/4, but written as 1/ 3/4
This is why I need to learn this latex so forum members understand what I write?
Thanks

Here is a wikipage with common math commands and examples
Helpisplaying a formula - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
\frac{1}{2}
So to write your first expression you would use
\frac{2}{3}+\frac{1}{6}=
if you want to practice "on the sly" without anyone seeing your terrible misfortune, choose a topic such as this one, and click on the "Go Advanced" tab when you reply.
there, you can click on "Preview Post" whilst you practice, and it will display what your miscreation will look like.
You can pratice LaTeX here:Online LaTeX Equation Editor.
Here's another way to write fractions:
[HTML]{2 \over 3}[/HTML]
gives:
[HTML]{2 \over 3}+{1 \over 6} ={5 \over 6}[/HTML]
gives :
