    How to type with proper symbols ?

    Hi everyone, I am new here and was trying to figure out how the mathematical equations are typed. I think something called Latex is used. But i can not figure out where to get it from ? The only useful options i can see when i post a thread is the one for 'superscript' and 'subscript'. Am i supposed to install Latex and copy paste stuff from there.

    Kindly guide this newbie !
    Cheers!

    Re: How to type with proper symbols ?

    You don't need to install anything to use LaTeX on this site, as the forum has an inbuilt LaTeX compiler. In order to get the mathematical symbols, your code needs to be wrapped in tex tags - [ tex ] [/ tex ] (without the spaces).

    To learn some appropriate code, visit the LaTeX help sub-forum
