Usually with the formatting guide, all you need to worry about is the symbols around the text that format stuff in certain ways, and the text part can be anything you want it to be.

For example, to have a piece of text be bold, you'd put two ** on either side, hi.

And I'm sure you've noticed already that this \ ( \ ) is for writing math on the same line. And this \ [ \ ] is for writing math on a separate new line.

If you have more specific questions, feel free to ask :). Sudeshna Pontula · 2 years, 2 months ago

@Vikram Venkat Like the latex symbols in an equation or the symbols to start an equation?

If you want to know which symbols to use for something in latex, you can look up latex guides on the internet or search for something specific like "integral symbol latex".

That's what I usually do, although the AoPS latex guide is a really nice one: http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Wiki/index.php/LaTeX:Symbols Sudeshna Pontula · 2 years, 1 month ago
