#### What is ?

Throughout the semester, youâ€™ll be asked to submit complete written solutions in your own posts on the OpenLab. One way to do this is to upload a photo of work you wrote on paper and upload it as a picture to include in your post. You could also just type the work directly into your post. The regular keyboard can do a lot, but it wonâ€™t look that great and youâ€™ll be missing useful math characters like and .

Instead, you can use the most commonly used math typesetting language, called (pronounced LAY-teck) right in your OpenLab posts. is a software system/markup language for typesetting math. It’s used widely to prepare research papers, technical reports, and other documents requiring mathematical symbols. A lot of you are planning on going into technical fields, and might find getting to know how to typeset math in to be useful. It takes a while to learn, but it’s waaaaaay better than Microsoft Word’s equation editor!

Our OpenLab page has a plugin installed, so that’s why I can type beautiful things that look like this:

#### Instructions

For this assignment all you’re going to do is *practice typing some code in the comments on this post.* What you type doesn’t have to make any mathematical sense, just try to get it to compile some math symbols. Go ahead and play around and make a giant mess in these comments. If something doesnâ€™t work at first, donâ€™t worry just try again.Â

Instructions for typing in on the OpenLab can be found here.

Two things to remember:

- Type [latexpage] at the top of your post/comment.
- Enclose your mathematical expression in dollar signs. (The instructions linked above use \begin{math} and \end{math} instead of dollar signs, but you can use either to enclose your expression.)

great work

d’=d(t) -x^4

$ /sqrt x^2 $

\begin{math} \sqrt{x/3} \end{math}

Ariel, don’t forget to include [latexpage] in your comment; the code in your second attempt should compile if you do that.

Professor is it possible to tell where is the plugin of LaTex . Should I do it in regular open-lab document .

Nice!

\begin{math} \frac{5x}{x} \end{math} = 5

= 5

got it đź™‚

\begin {math} \frac{x^2 y^2 z^3}{x y z} \end{math}

\begin{math} x^{7} \frac{x^y } {23+12x} \end{math

Whoops

\beging{math} x^3 \end{math}

hi jui , can you tell me in OpenLab where is the plugin of Latex ?

(sqrt((x-2)))/(2)

Hey, did you get the app from openlab or from some other platform?
