$x^2\sqrt{x}$

$\ln{\pi^4}$
$\ln{-\frac{\sqrt{x}}{x^4}}$

$\int{\displaystyle{e^{\frac{\pi}{4}}}} dx$

$\int^4_{2}{e^{\frac{\pi}{4}}} dx$

$\displaystyle{\frac{1}{2}} \\ \frac{1}{2}$

why doesnt latex work above?

when i do [/tex] at the end, i get a "conversion error" message.

I can see the symbols with not errors reported.

Here is my own test

math]P_{i} = \frac{e^{-\beta E_{i}}}{Z}[/tex]

[LaTeX ERROR: Compile failed]

tex]P_{i} = \frac{e^{-\beta E_{i}}}{Z}[/tex]

$P_{i} = \frac{e^{-\beta E_{i}}}{Z}$

It would seem this forum accepts "tex][/tex]" tabs but not mathml tabs "math][/tex]"

Note I have left off the leading [ to make the tabs visible.

Try using dollar signs instead of the math tags.

$\int_{0}^{12} \frac{3x}{43-x^2}$
$\int_{0}^12 \frac{3x}{43-x^2}$
[$$]\int_{0}^{12}\frac{3x}{43-x^2} [/$$]
[$]\int_{0}^{12}\frac{3x}{43-x^2} [/$]
[$]\int_{0}^{12}\frac{3x}{43-x^2} [$]

6. ## Re: Me Testing Latex

look at my comment above... dollar signs dont work for some reason. only the tex tags work

7. ## Re: Me Testing Latex

$\int_{0}^{12} \frac{3x}{43-x^2}$
$\int_{0}^12 \frac{3x}{43-x^2}$
$\int_{0}^{12}\frac{3x}{43-x^2}$
$\int_{0}^{12}\frac{3x}{43-x^2}$
$\int_{0}^{12}\frac{3x}{43-x^2}$

All of those use \$. Do a reply with quote to see the code.

For reasons unknown to me the dollar signs work better for one member than for another. As far as I know the "tex" tags work for everyone.
