There is another guide that was posted early. :)

This guide is very helpful as I'm just learning to use LaTex, thank you.

I do have one question: is there a way to push lines slightly to the right (like the Tab feature in word processors) without pushing them all the way to the middle? For example, in the lines

\({(p-1)}^p \equiv -1 \pmod {p^2}\)

\(\equiv {p^2-1} \pmod {p^2}\)

\(\equiv {(p-1)(p+1)} \pmod {p^2}\)

I would really like to have the equivalence symbol in the second and third lines line up with the one in the first line. Is there a way to do that?

Appear as
