TeX is [u]easy[/u]. It takes 2 days to learn and 2 weeks to a become a proficient journeyman...

Of course, you rip the benefice of this

for Life...You gain time, when you use TeX instead of word to type formulas like :

"the integral from 0 to 1 the function (1 divided by 1 plus x squared) of the x variable is equal to pi."

[u] The previous text, in TeX code would look like[/u] :

TeX is $underline{easy}$. It takes $2$ days to learn and $2$ weeks to a become a proficient journeyman...

You gain time, when you use TeX instead of word to type formulas like :

$$

int_0^1{1over1+x^2}dx=pi.

$$

bye

Explanations$maths$ = math mode between two $ symboles

$$maths$$ = the same but in beatifull formula mode

TeX = a core macro that writes TeX with eyecandy

underline = core macro to underline

medskip = macro to skip a bit vertically and indent

{bf expression} = the expression is written with

BoldFaceint = integral symbol

^Someting = overscript something

_something = subscript something

{exp1over exp2} = writes the fraction exp1/exp2

pi = the greek letter pi

There...if you have read that, you know 50% of what you need to know to type in TeX
