[<< wikibooks] MediaWiki User Guide/Mathematics
You can enter mathematical formulas into a wiki, using a math tag, such as:

$\sqrt\left\{2\right\}$

The formulas are marked up in the TeX markup, the markup of a complex typesetting system specialized on mathematics.
Before you start writing formulas in this markup, you can consider writing the simpler ones in HTML and wiki markup, such as:

f(x) = b + c / dwhich is marked up as

''f''(x) = ''b'' + ''c'' / ''d''

== Examples ==
To get started, follow the examples below.

== Greek and symbols ==
There is a way of marking up Greek characters and special symbols, as the following table shows.
