Hi there!

Hello, this is my first post.

I found this place whilst searching for forums for math lovers smile. I read the rules in the intro to registration and figured I'd like it here.

I chose the name ln(x) because e is my favorite number and the logarithm is one of my favorite functions (It resembles a breaching whale, and whales are my favorite animal).

I hope to meet friends here, to teach others mathematics and learn some new mathematics as well.~

Re: Hi there!

Hi ln(x);

Welcome to the forum!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Hi there!

hi ln{x}

Welcome to the forum.

You could have called yourself 'e' then, and saved some typing.  smile

The forum is tranferring to a new server and there's a spot of teething trouble with mathemathical formatting using Latex.

So I cannot show you my favorite equation.  sad

Hopefully soon.

EDIT: post 8

Hi Bob

You can always make a picture on codecogs and link to it:

gif.latex?\int_{t=1}^{x}\frac{1}{t}\%20dt

Explain the steps please. 

Assume I've got my Latex in codecogs and it is displaying correctly.

Hi Bob

Right-click on the image, click "copy image URL" and paste it between img tags.

Re: Hi there!

??

No copy image url option.

copy doesn't copy anything.

I've pasted the properties address here but it doesn't show the image.

EDIT:  It works with no spaces.

gif.latex?e^{i\pi}+1=0
