Documentation
Description
LaTeX is a typesetting system commonly used for technical and scientific documents, especially in mathematics, computer science, engineering, and physics. It provides a comprehensive set of features for typesetting mathematical expressions, equations, and symbols.
This tool is only used for maths and mathematical equations
Potential use cases
Writing Mathematical Equations: LaTeX is widely used for writing mathematical equations, expressions, and formulas with precision and clarity.
Writing Mathematical Symbols: LaTeX provides a vast array of mathematical symbols and operators, making it suitable for writing complex mathematical expressions and symbols.
Producing HighQuality Output: LaTeX produces highquality output with crisp and scalable mathematical symbols and equations, making it ideal for printing and publishing mathematical content.

Examples
The quadratic formula is given by:
\[
x = \frac{{b \pm \sqrt{{b^2  4ac}}}}{{2a}}
\]
where $a$, $b$, and $c$ are coefficients of the quadratic equation $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$.a
The massenergy equivalence is described by the famous equation
\begin{equation} \label{einsteineq}
E=mc^2
\end{equation}
Equation $\ref{einsteineq}$ discovered in 1905 by Albert Einstein.
In natural units ($c$ = 1), the formula expresses the identity
\[E=m\]
Equation and simplified verion
\begin{equation} \label{fulleq} \tag{full equation}
x=2y2+z+3z+y
\end{equation}
Simplified
\begin{equation} \label{simeq} \tag{simplified equation}
x=5y+4z
\end{equation}
