LaTeX symbols

I have seen many people here on Brilliant (especially solution writers) who don't know the LaTeX formatting and even if they know, they struggle to use it because they can't find the right code for the required symbols. Recently, I found a wiki link with the entire list of LaTeX symbols and their respective codes (maybe some are not there). Anyways, I thought of sharing that link, so here's the link : LaTeX symbol guide

Also, here's a link for LaTeX font styles and colors : LaTeX/Fonts

Also, there are other certain Brilliant wiki posts relating to this. If this note helps you, be kind to reshare it so that other Brilliant users can improve their solutions, etc by correctly using LaTeX symbols.

  Easy Math Editor

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.
