Latex

Dear All!
Please, can someone help me write potencies in latex, like this one:

x^3
x^(1/3)
etc...!

Just found out!
\n^x within latex tags!!!
Many thanks!

\a^{\frac{a+b}{c+d}} of course, within latex tags!
When I write x between altex tags I get confusing symbol:
\x^{\frac12}

How do I get normal x in latex???

x^{1/3} or x^{\frac13}, in case you don't know.

When using [latex] . . . [/latex] (as distinct from MathJax), a simple x gives , whereas \text{x} gives .
Putting "\" in front of a letter gives some special symbol (depending on the letter) or an error.
\a gives
\B gives
\C gives
\d gives
\D gives
\e gives
\g gives
\G gives
\I gives
\j gives
\k gives
\l gives
\L gives
\m gives
\M gives
\n gives
\o gives
\O gives
\p gives
\P gives
\q gives
\R gives
\S gives
\t gives
\T gives
\u gives
\U gives
\w gives
\x gives
\X gives
\Y gives
\z gives

The latex tag is processed using mimeTeX on this site, so you might not get the same results elsewhere, especially on sites using TeX. Also, support for mimeTeX on this site may eventually be dropped.

It's therefore a good idea to use math tags, which cause use of MathJax, even though MathJax has limitations and is sometimes slow. MathJax does not accept any of the above examples except \S. Note that mimeTeX produces images, whereas MathJax produces searchable text. Use of MathJax isn't currently possible in PMs.
Thanks from soroban and topsquark
