Maths Formulae

This site uses MathJax to render Maths. It is basically $\LaTeX$ (that's Latex in case you find that hard to read) and there are lots of tutorials on the internet that you can use.

To type in a formula you need to surround it with dollar signs, i.e. $...$. x squares would be x^2 etc, or with the dollar signs around it it becomes $x^2$.

(You might also need to set the Text format to "Full HTML").

can i use these symbols to create formulas here? or or this is the wrong tutorial?well, i used those to create math tests and everything works. still not quite sure mathjax works with everything

Yes, those should all (or at least pretty much all) work.
