When you ask a math question, I would like you to use the following criteria to type out certain functions and numbers.

**Fractions:** If
you type a fraction, such as one-half, please do it in this form: (1/2) **with**
the parentheses. It will make it much clearer. If you have a complex problem,
such as the following:

__(1/2)+(4/3)__

(6/7)+(8/9)

Please post it using more parentheses: [(1/2)+(4/3)]/[(6/7)+(8/9)]. Or you can type it out like in the original problem, but please be sure it looks clear.

**Exponents:**
Exponents, such as x^{2} or 5^{2} or x^{3} should be
typed like this:

x^{2} =
x^2

5^{2} = 5^2

x^{3} = x^3

Use the "^" symbol, which is on the number 6 key.

**Multiplication:**
The small "x" is what I want to be used for the multiply symbol.

**Square roots and
radicals:** If you have something like
, I want you to
make it look like the following:

= sqrt 5 or 5^(1/2)^{*}

= x^(1/2)

= 5^(1/2)

= x^(1/3)

**CALCULUS:**

**Derivatives:**
f(x), f'(x), y, y', d/dx, (d/dx), etc. You should be able to type out the symbol
so that I understand.

**Integrals:**
Replace that squiggly line with a "Int". Look at the examples below:

= Int (x^2, 5, 6) --> This means integrate x^2 from 5 to 6. So the formula is: Int (equation, lower, upper)

**Inverse Sine,
Cosine, Tangent, etc:** Use either arcsin (x) or (sin x)^-1. I think arcsin
(x) would be the better choice.

*Don't worry if you don't know what 5^(1/2) means.
