Latex is best learn incrementally. The basis of it is really simple, you just need to remember to put your code within \ ( and \ ) (no spaces).

When you see that it fails, then remove the brackets, and just leave it be. E.g. 1 + 2 is as easy to read as $$1 + 2$$.

When you see someone with an interesting Latex formula that you like you can hover your mouse button over the image to see the actual code. Alternatively, you can hit the "Toggle Latex", which would allow you to copy-and-paste the code so that you can play with it.

Jun, there are some notes on how to use LaTex in this Brilliant site. Just use the search box on the top right corner with the magnifying glass icon. I have copied a link for you.

I am also a beginner in learning latex. All i have learned is from this link and i always see the latex code of others' solutions (you can do that by choosing 'toggle latex' or by hovering over the solution.)

You can read the $$link$$ and then wait for more experts to come.Hope it helps you.

P.S. Oops I thought you are a beginner but saw your problems , must say you know latex.

Yes, originally those problems were not in latex ..but I think the staff edited it into latex form..hoho.. I didnt know about latex honestly

You can learn from the link that Ashwin has given , or there is an easier way as well . Your profile pic is there on the top-right corner of this page . When you click on it , there'll be an option Toggle Latex .

Click it , now you'll be able to see the $$\LaTeX$$ codes present on any page where you perform this small ritual :P
