# Writing LaTeX

I tried to write in LaTeX following the Formatting guide. But it's appearing in LaTeX. As example, I wrote \­( 2^3 \­) . But it's remaining same when I preview.

Hi Fahim,

It looks like you have extra whitespace between '\' and '(' . You can find hidden characters by copy-pasting your string into the text box and using the arrows to move the cursor through your code.

Here it is as you posted it above:

\­( 2^3 \­)

Here it is with the secret whitespace characters removed:

$$2^3$$

Were you working on this problem in another text editor like Microsoft Word?

You are right. It was happening because of the secret characters. Thank You.
