**Math formulas** can be displayed on articles using the ** <math>** tag.

For the technically inclined, MediaWiki (which is used by Fandom wikis) uses a subset of AMS-LaTeX markup, a superset of LaTeX markup which is in turn a superset of TeX markup, for mathematical formulas.

## Step by step

- Open source editing mode for an article.
- Write your math code in the following format:
`<math>math to be displayed</math>`

. - For example, the equation '3 x 2 = 6' can be displayed using:
`<math>{3 ~ \times ~ 2 ~ = ~ 6}</math>`

- Which generates this:
- $ {3 ~ \times ~ 2 ~ = ~ 6} $

- For details on how to write the math formulas themselves, see Help:Displaying a formula, on Wikipedia.

## Notes

- Large formulas may become wider than the maximum page width. Consider breaking them into multiple lines when possible.
- Another solution is to place the formula inside a simple div with "overflow-x:scroll" set, so that a scrollbar show up. For example:

<div style="overflow-x:scroll;"> <math> ... </math> </div>

- In-line formulas can have poor vertical alignment relative to the rest of the text. A work-around is described on Wikipedia.
