# Typing A Problem

I wanted to type some really good problems on brilliant but due to involvement of power of x in it i could only write it as x3 or x2. i wanted help from you members about enabling subscript and superscript in typing the problems, please help.

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.

Remember to wrap math in $$ ... $$ or $ ... $ to ensure proper formatting.
2 \times 3 $2 \times 3$
2^{34} $2^{34}$
a_{i-1} $a_{i-1}$
\frac{2}{3} $\frac{2}{3}$
\sqrt{2} $\sqrt{2}$
\sum_{i=1}^3 $\sum_{i=1}^3$
\sin \theta $\sin \theta$
\boxed{123} $\boxed{123}$

You can use this symbol " ^ " and then enter the power otherwise I don't know if there is any option for superscript.

Hello kushagra

If you want to type any expression you should put them into ')' '' Suppose if you want to type \(x^2 then you should first write x^2 and then put them into the brackets i told earlier $WITHOUT ANY SPACE$.

Also if you put your cursor on $x^2$ for few seconds , the code will be displayed and you can know how to type the expressions.

Hope you have understood.
