# Template:Math

 [history] [purge] 50px Template documentation

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] (see: HELP:Math).

## Contents

### 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|{{mapply|sin <i>π</i>}} {{=}} 0}}
```
produces: sin π = 0. The coding "<i>" puts italic font, same as "<var>" but doesn't indicat that it's a variable.
```{{math|{{minteg|0|+∞|{{mexp|−''x''}} d''x''}} {{=}} 1}}
```
produces: +∞
0
ex dx = 1
```'''{{math|{{frac|1|2}} − {{frac|1|3}} {{=}} {{frac|1|6}}}}'''
```
produces: 1213 = 16. Note the triple-apostrophes have set the whole formula as bold.
```{{math|({{mrad|2}})<sup>2</sup> {{=}} 2}}
```
produces: (2)2 = 2.

### 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: , 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.

### Parameters

The following parameters are optional:

• `big=1` – This wil render the formula in a bigger fontsize, increased to 165%.
• `size=font-size` – Use this to specify your own fontsize.
```{{math|big=1|1 + 2 {{=}} 3}}
```
produces: 1 + 2 = 3
