It spreads out a bit, but you could also try this: $\displaystyle \begin{matrix} f(x) & = & x^3 \\ f'(x) & = & 3x^2 \\ ~ & = & 600 \end{matrix}$ -Dan

To be honest, I also don't know. But Chris A, you can quote topsquark's post to see what codes he used. Thanks from topsquark

Below is another method that works (and I recommend) if you don't want to mix normal text and latex code. Click on the Quote button for this post to see the code I've used. \displaystyle \begin{align*}\text{If }f(x) &= x^3,\text{ then} \\ f\,'(x) &= 3x^2 \\ &= 600 \end{align*} Thanks from topsquark

Note: This only works with MathJax rendered $\LaTeX$, but the vast majority here are using it rather than mimetex. Thanks from topsquark Last edited by MarkFL; February 22nd, 2015 at 10:16 AM.
