# How to you use LaTeX?

I've been trying hard to make the latex work but it always dosent.. how do you show powers in LaTeX?

$$\sum_{i=1}^{11} 2^i = 2^1 + 2^2 + \ldots + 2^{11}$$

$$\frac{2}{3}$$

you can use " \displaystyle{} " to solve this problem. Put your code in "{ }" of "\displaystyle{}". this is the example. I put "\displaystyle{\sum_{i=1}^3}" inside \­( ...\­)and get something like this. $$\displaystyle{\sum_{i=1}^3}$$ · 3 years, 6 months ago
