If I ask a question and need to use equations and formulae, where can I find a guide to create symbols for formula writing, useful for maths, physics, or engineering, etc.?


On sites that have MathJax enabled, the editing help has a short section about LaTex.

The help also links to the MathJax site, where more information is available.

    We know that Matjax == equations, but how do new users know that? There isn't a hint or something like that. – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 11:41

    The "ask question" page has some hints: i.stack.imgur.com/ArWs6.png – Oded Nov 15 '16 at 11:44
  • I see that, but how do I know that is about making nice formatted equations? I am not sure how common MathJax is in that world. – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 12:00
  • @PatrickHofman A heading saying Mathjax Equations provides a decent hint that it's tool for making equations. It's followed by link to "Mathjax Help" if someone's looking for such a tool and wanted to know more. – Robert Cartaino Nov 15 '16 at 16:05
