Beginner

I want to learn how to type equation by latex.
Do I need to install what program? I've no idea how it works.

Type your code inside these tags:

[MATH]\frac{25}{36}[/MATH]

gives

$\displaystyle \frac{25}{36}$

There are some examples of latex code here. Experiment!

Math Focus: Physics, mathematical modelling, numerical and computational solutions
Use the link below and skip down to the maths bit (Chapter 3). The only difference between Latex in that document and the Mymathforum is that we use [ MATH][ /MATH] tags for math mode instead of the dollar signs. All of the commands there will work

Dollar signs work too, as do environments.
