Seeking help just getting a hand written equation in type format. I am working on a project for a school. If anyone could bail me out here I would very thankful. I have taken a photo. I have three left to right out and have no clue on these. Thanks Bill math1.jpg math2.jpg math3.jpg

Asking for an "equation in type format" doesn't really tell us what you are looking for.

A quick an easy solution is of course to just use Microsoft Word. It has an equation editor which will allow you to type these up. As mentioned though, LaTeX is the way to go if you have time .

I remember when I was starting college and had not yet to encounter Microsoft Equation, the professor gave us a matrix homework in printout form. Without knowing what to do but still expecting to print a proper and tidy assignments, we wrote matrix like this: / 1 2 3 \  4 5 6  \ 7 8 9 /

Global Moderator Joined: Dec 2006 Posts: 16,928 Thanks: 1253  https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php does most of it for you. Put a "\" character before each trigonometric function name. Type \$(\cos\theta + i\sin\theta)^n = \cos n\theta + i\sin\theta\$ here and MathJax makes it appear as $(\cos\theta + i\sin\theta)^n = \cos n\theta + i\sin\theta$. For the integral, you would type [math]\int_a^b \text{f}(x)dx = \text{F}(b)  \text{F}(a)[/math]. Try it. Other websites may require you to type "latex" or "tex" instead of "math".

If you encase your math between \$...\$, it should appear more compact. If you encase between [MATH]...[/ MATH], it should appear with proper sizes. $\int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\frac{\sin x}{\cos x}dx$ is with \$...\$. $\displaystyle \int_{0}^{\frac{\pi}{2}}\frac{\sin x}{\cos x}dx$ is with [MATH].
