Math Symbols

If someone could show me how to use mathematical symbols on Conservapedia, I would be glad to correct this article. L'Hopital's Rule is in fact a rule for calculating the limit of the quotient of two functions when such a limit appears to approach an indeterminate form (such as 0/0, infinity/infinity, etc.). This problem is addressed by taking the limit of the quotient of the derivatives of the two functions. If this also yields an indeterminate form, the process can be iterated as many times as is necessary to obtain a meaningful result. --Economist 18:00, 6 February 2009 (EST)

  • Try this:

Mathematical formulas

  • Write mathematical formulas indented with a ":" in the following way:

:<math>LaTeX formula goes here</math>

  • Try to avoid numbering your equations and instead reference them in the text by their names or describe them in words. Numbered equations creates problem when someone later adds an equation in the middle of a page. However, if you find it absolutely necessary to number your formulas please use a HTML table like this:

<table width="70%">
<tr><td>
:<math>
LaTeX for formula one goes here
</math>      
</td><td width="5%">(1)</td></tr>

  • For definitions and equivalences use "" (<math>\equiv</math>) and use "" (<math>=</math>) for equations.
  • If you want to put some text within an equation, use the \mbox{} environment. For example

:<math>
\epsilon_{ijk} = 1, \mbox{ if all i, j, k are different and in cyclic order}
</math>

will produce
