# Including Mathematical Notations in Rich Text Fields

The Pathable site is capable of displaying mathematical notations in rich text fields via an integration with the MathJax version 3 system.

All mathematical notations should be written in the **TeX** or **LaTeX** format, and need to follow math delimiters that surround the notations. For example:

**$$**...**$$**and**\[**...**\]**to display larger equations that appear separated from the rest of the text on lines by themselves.**\(**...**\)**and**$**...**$**to in-line notations (occur within a paragraph).

**Note: **It's possible to include formulas manually or via imports and Data feeds, as long as the information imported includes the correct delimiters surrounding the notations.

**Example #1**

If the notation below is inserted into a Rich Text attribute via the **Pathable admin dashboard:**

*When \(a \ne 0\), there are two solutions to \(ax^2 + bx + c = 0\) and they are**$$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}.$$*

It will display this way on the **event site (app) **as**:**

**Example #2**

If the notation below is inserted into a Rich Text attribute via the **Pathable admin dashboard:**

*Given an operator, say $\sigma$, two sets $X$ and $Y$ are \textit{cospanning} if $\sigma\left( X\right) =\sigma\left( Y\right) $. The corresponding equivalence relation, called cospanning,*

It will display this way on the **event site (app) **as**:**
