# Writing Code in Solutions

Hi all. What's the best way to include code in a solution? I've never done this before today. Any help is appreciated!

Add ` to the start and end of your code sequence. I've edited your comment so you can click "edit" to see the change.

If you mean LaTeX, then just begin your code with $$and end with$$

Example, if you wanted to write the square root of 2, you would do $$\sqrt{2} and then end it with$$.

$$\sqrt{2}$$.

When you post, at the bottom, there is a formatting guide, it will tell you all you need to know.

Sorry, I meant code as in a programming language, e.g. Python, Java. Should've been more precise.
