# Appendix B: Math Symbol Reference¶

## Subscripts and superscripts¶

Command

Result

$alpha_i > beta_i$

$alpha^2 > beta_i^a$

## Fractions, binomials and stacked numbers¶

$\frac{3}{4}$


$\binom{3}{4}$


$\stackrel{3}{4}$


$\frac{5 - \frac{1}{x}}{4}$


## Using parenthesis properly¶

$(\frac{5 - \frac{1}{x}}{4})$


Notice how the parenthesis do not properly wrap the object inside. To address this, use the \left and \right qualifiers in front of your parenthesis.

$\left(\frac{5 - \frac{1}{x}}{4}\right)$


$\sqrt{2}$


$\sqrt[3]{x}$


## Accents¶

Command

Result

\acute a or \'a

\bar a

\breve a

\ddot a or \"a

\dot a or \.a

\grave a or \a

\hat a or \^a

\tilde a or \~a

\vec a

\widehat{xyz}

\widetilde{xyz}
