    It is LaTeX coding.
    It really is so easy. And it makes most of us more willing to find out how to help.
    This subforum will help you with the code. Once you begin, you quickly learn the code.

    [TEX]\alpha,~\beta,~\gamma,~\delta,~\Delta,~\sigma,~ \Sigma[/TEX] gives \alpha,~\beta,~\gamma,~\delta,~\Delta,~\sigma,~ \Sigma

    [TEX](5+2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3}+(5-2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3} [/TEX] gives  (5+2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3}+(5-2\sqrt{6})^{x^2-3}



    If you click on the “go advanced tab” you should see \boxed{\Sigma} on the tool-bar. That gives the [TEX]..[/TEX] wrap. Your LaTeX code goes between them.

    Re: symbols

    Hello, krcmd!

    How do I input symbols, greek letters, etc?

    You could learn to use LaTeX.

    \begin{array}{ccc}\backslash\text{alpha} & \alpha \\ \backslash\text{beta} & \beta \\ \backslash\text{pi} & \pi \\ \backslash\text{sqrt}\{x\} & \sqrt{x} \\  \backslash\text{cap} & \cap \\ \backslash\text{cup} & \cup \end{array} \qquad \begin{array}{ccc} \backslash\text{approx} & \approx \\ \backslash\text{equiv} & \equiv \\ \backslash\text{parallel} & \parallel \\ \backslash\text{perp} & \perp \\ \backslash\text{forall} & \forall \\ \backslash\text{exists} & \exists \end{array}


    Some codes are available.
    Enclose these numbers in: &#___;

    8776 .

    8730 .

    952 . . θ

    960 . . π

    8710 .
