    For my buddy algebra

    algebra,

    I see that LaTex is giving you a rough time in posts like this:

    http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...6-algebra.html

    For your 2 term fraction problems that you enter, use this little generator I built for you. You want to paste in the text from Cell B10. I even named the file after you.

    May I recommend this post, written by Krizalid?

    This will aid you in typing perfect textbook-like expressions, without knowing a single bit of LaTeX itself.


    EDIT: My apologies, i forgot to add the link.

    a-7 enter as (a - 7) or just a - 7

    Write in [ math][ /math] command without spaces between [&m and [&/ and write this:
    \frac{4}{a-7} = \frac{-2a}{a+3}
    to obtain:
    \frac{4}{a-7} = \frac{-2a}{a+3}

    Similarly, entering this:
    \frac{3x}{x+2} - \frac{x-2}{x+2}
    obtains:
    \frac{3x}{x+2} - \frac{x-2}{x+2}

    Here is a PDF file created by MathMan which describes basic commands: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...rial-latex.pdf
