# Template:Math

{{{1}}} Template documentation[view]  [history] [purge]

The Math template formats HTML- or wikimarkup generated mathematical formulas in the same manner as HTML based TeX formulas, which uses a serif-based font. The generated formula is displayed using the same-size font as the adjoining text. The template will prevent line-wrapping.

Use this template for non-complex formulas as an alternative to using the "math" tag format "[itex]...[/itex].

### Usage

Use this template to wrap an inline formula in wikitext. Examples:

```{{math|''x''<sup>2</sup> + ''y''<sup>2</sup> {{=}} ''r''<sup>2</sup>}}
```
produces: x2 + y2 = r2
```{{math|{{minteg|0|+∞|{{mexp|−''x''}} d''x''}} {{=}} 1}}
```
produces: +∞
0
ex dx = 1
```'''{{math|{{frac|1|2}} − {{frac|1|3}} {{=}} {{frac|1|6}}}}'''
```
produces: 12 − ​13 = ​16. Note the triple-apostrophes have set the whole formula as bold.
```{{math|({{Radic|2}})<sup>2</sup> {{=}} 2}}
```
produces: (2)2 = 2.
```{{math|''x''<sup>2</sup> + ''y''<sup>2</sup> {{=}} ''r''<sup>2</sup>}}
```
produces: x2 + y2 = r2, same as first example, but using double-apostrophes to get italic font.

### Use of equals-sign

If a single equals-sign ("=") is used, it will fail to render, instead showing "{{{1}}}". For example, the following template-coding would be invalid:

`{{math|1 + 2 = 3}}`
produces: {{{1}}}, which is invalid code

To resolve this, either: (a) Start the formula with "`1=`" as in:

`{{math|1=1 + 2 = 3}}`
produces: 1 + 2 = 3, or else, (b) include the equals-sign in double-braces "{{=}}" as in:
`{{math|1 + 2 {{=}} 3}}`
produces: 1 + 2 = 3.
