    Are you enclosing your code with the TEX tags?

    without tags: \sqrt{\frac{x}{y}}

    with tags: \sqrt{\frac{x}{y}}

    If you click the "reply with quote" or the "go advanced" you should see a \Sigma on the toolbar. Click that tab. You will see [TEX][/TEX] appear. Type the Latex code between them. Or else, highlight the code and then click the \Sigma

    So [TEX]\sqrt{\frac{x}{y}}[/TEX] gives \sqrt{\frac{x}{y}}

    \frac{2+sqrt{x^2+3}}{3x+2}-{x-2}

    There's nothing to download.

    To practice, use the preview function without submitting the post. The best practice is to just dive in and begin using it.
