# Cannot post question using specific MathJax because of warning about missing code formatting

On Mathematica SE, this snippet couldn't be submitted as a question

some text...

some more text....

$$\rho_h(f)=R_h(f)/R_0(f)$$

The error was

Your post appears to contain code that is not properly formatted as code. Please indent all code by 4 spaces using the code toolbar button or the CTRL+K keyboard shortcut. For more editing help, click the [?] toolbar icon.

I really couldn't figure out the typo, if any. Is this a bug? Please help.

EDIT: the suggested solution here is about the use of ` during code formatting which, as far as I know, is mutually exclusive from LaTex formatting

• oh no ..copy paste what i have formatted as code..I am actually not entering as code. Didn't know of mathematica meta...could you please kindly migrate this question there or direct me how to do do myself? – lineage Jan 23 at 8:25
• @Luuklag The question is fine here. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Jan 23 at 8:26
• I assume this issue may affect all sites that support MathJax, eg Mathematics, Physics, Astronomy, Chemistry. So it should be on-topic here. – PM 2Ring Jan 23 at 8:30
• Can this question get a more descriptive title, so it can be of use to future readers? – Luuklag Jan 23 at 12:14

This solves it

$$\rho_h(f)=R_h(f)/R_0(f)$$

instead of

$$\rho_h(f)=R_h(f)/R_0(f)$$

This is surprising since its not a problem on Physics SE.
Hope the Mathematica code checker can be updated to accommodate this, imho, common way of writing.
