# Writing mathematical equations in WordPress

I am going to attempt to write math equations on this blog.

Currently I am updating this blog post on my iPad Pro. MathPad is a good app for creating equations which can be exported as and image, LaTeX or Mathtype.

### LaTeX

$x=\dfrac {-b\pm \sqrt {b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}$

Both these look fine in user view.

### Note.

The above LaTex statement was

x=\dfrac {-b\pm \sqrt {b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}

and this was placed within the wrapper

$latex ….$

But with no blank between \$ and l! I had to insert this blank to stop WordPress treating it as LaTeX statement.
