i dont know how to use latex but i have few problems that i have thought in my mind but could not contribute it to brilliant though i am curious . so pls help

Use this Art of Problem Solving link to download some latex software. I takes a few hours, but after it all you really get to understand how and why to use latex.

I went ahead and fixed it for you, the issue is the Art of Problem Solving site uses the ":" character in some of their urls which confuses the markdown parser. The solution is to replace the : with a %3A (which is the urlencoded equivalent)

I have just inserted an example of how to make Latex format on brilliant into your comment. Go into the editing view of your comment to see how I typed it. Once you learn how to bracket the math in \'s and parentheses, much of the actual typing of Latex is intuitive or requires looking up in our formatting guide, or the above aops wiki. Good luck!
