Do we have an equation editing HOWTO?

I think my questions and answers always need editing from proffesionals. I am ashamed of my self.

How do everyone else can write beautifully. Things like x^2 or (A+B)/C. How do you do that?

Can we do that in HTML?

Can I feature questions and answers here on my site.

    $\begingroup$ I should point out that this question has already been asked before (e.g. here, here, here, and here), and it is also dealt with in this supplemental FAQ post, and so we should close it as a duplicate. $\endgroup$ – Zev Chonoles Apr 16 '12 at 5:54

    $\begingroup$ @ZevChonoles: So many people asking the same thing. I wonder why... $\endgroup$ – Noob Saibot Feb 10 '14 at 21:16
  • $\begingroup$ @NoobSaibot: Because people are too impatient to find out whether their question has already been answered to check before asking it themselves - a problem, I may add, which is readily apparent on the main site as well. $\endgroup$ – Zev Chonoles Feb 10 '14 at 21:48

    $\begingroup$ @ZevChonoles: I'm just saying, as the Devil's Advocate, the fact that so many people feel the need to ask this question could serve as evidence that the information might not be as conspicuous as you think. $\endgroup$ – Noob Saibot Feb 10 '14 at 22:08
  • $\begingroup$ I think the reason so many people ask is because it is not in the slightest way clear how to do so. Not once does it say in the 'tutorial' when you signup how. $\endgroup$ – Ben Hughes Dec 27 '17 at 17:09

No need to be ashamed - it unfortunately is not clearly indicated where to see how to format math expressions on the site.

You can find some good starting points on how to format mathematics on the site here and here.
If you need to format more advanced things, there are many excellent references on LaTeX on the internet, including StackExchange's own TeX.SE site.

If you see a piece of LaTeX you want to know the code for on the site, you can right click on it, go to "Show Math As", then choose "TeX Commands" - this is a good way of picking up how to do things (this currently does not work with Chrome unfortunately).
