Using LaTeX for YSJ Articles – Guide

Here is a standard description of something from an article, and now let’s render an equation:

By typing the following in the Google Doc, 

When\\(a \ne 0\\), there are two solutions to \\(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\\) and they are
\\[x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.\\]

You will obtain this result:

When \(a \ne 0\), there are two solutions to \(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\) and they are
\[x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.\]

As you can see, when using \\(……..\), you will obtain an in-line equation, when you use \\[……\\] you will render a standalone displayed equation.

If you are looking for an editor for LaTeX, I’d encourage you to use this one by CodeCogs: https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php Once you get your equation in LaTeX form from this website, you can simply copy and paste it within the \\(……..\) or \\[……\\] delimiters, and it will be rendered correctly once published!
