# Can I use Mathematics Stack Exchange's MathJax for uses different than those intended?

I am participating in the IYMC and need to type some answers. As a member of this site for $$9$$ months, I find myself much more comfortable typing in MathJax than in Microsoft Word. So I hope that I can simply type in what I need in the body and use the screenshots to create a pdf file with my answers. I will not be posting the question, only use the display screen below it. So I was wondering if it was a copyright infringement and if I should mention where I typed the answers. Thank you for your patience.

• No, I think you'd be fine. Or you could use CodeCogs LaTeX editor if you prefer.

• Oh thanks. But MSE just feels more natural. Sep 21 '18 at 20:22
• Microsoft Word supports a reasonable number of LaTeX commands.

• Hmm I didn't know that. I was having to subscript, superscript, copying and pasting $\pi$ and wasting a lot of time in general. But I am already on the last question here so no point switching now. Sep 21 '18 at 20:29
• To be fair, the amount of effort that it would take to set up screenshots of a bunch of MSE MathJax would probably be less than the effort to learn how to use LaTeX on a site like ShareLatex (and there you can actually edit as needed, unlike in a screenshot).

• Where these sites hidden on the deep net or worse, page $2$ of search results whenever I was searching? Thank you for your help. I hope that I at least reach the finals$\ldots$ Sep 21 '18 at 20:44
• Why not just $\TeX$ up your work? If you don't want to install a $\TeX$ system on your system, you can use an online system such as Overleaf.
