# 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!
