A teenager with a passion for all things computers! I have cerebral palsy so computers have been my best, and I've got the most out of them. I've taught myself AutoIt, Java, and a bit of most web languages, including PHP and HTML, as now own about six domains and I'm in the process of starting my own business. I don't confess to know everything about anything and I know I have A LOT to learn but I do what I can and try to help out where I can. I think I'm the biggest 'Guru' of the family!

Ok. Guess what I'll be doing of the next couple of weeks then... - Learning LaTex. It looks very powerful though and I'm looking forward to not needing a scribe in my exam. Thank you for your help

Yeah, I think I'll just have to use StackExchange if I really need - though probably once I get more confident, I won't. I could probably install MathJax on my computer but it looks like it would also involve installing PHP and Javascript which I really wouldn't like to do. I like TexWorks but the display does seem a little odd, is there any way to change the margins etc.?

I've had a quick look at LyX but it looks a bit heavy and cumbersome considering that TexWorks does basically the same thing, from what I can see. You're probably right about not needing the live rendering once I get more confident anyway. Thanks for your help

Thanks for the link to that YouTube playlist - it looks really helpful. TexWork looks really good but I'd have liked it better if you could see a live output like on here rather than running the script each time. I'm probably being a bit picky though

Thanks for that link. LaTeX does sound like it will do job for me, and I'm sure I'll be able to learn it in time. Do you know of any good software I could use at school, that preferably generates a live output like on here?

As I said to mt, I have only heard about LaTex and don't really know much about it. To be honest I just thought it was something from StackExchange and didn't really it was a standard as such. Are there any decent programs for Windows 7 that you know of and do you have any recommendations as to where I can start?

I had heard about LaTex but I don't know much about it and I haven't really looked at it, but I will have a look in a minute

comment Upper and lower bounds in regards to 0.(9)
Yes, I have recently discovered the fact that 8.(9) and 9 are equal because of 8.(9) < x < 9! I know that you don't have to attempt multiplication here, but my Grandfather being my Grandfather was eager to try and 'unprove' this "theory", but at last it appears that mathematics has the upper hand here!

Point Taken; I've changed the post so it should read correctly. I fully admit this was my fault, and it probably doesn't help that I don't know anything about the formatting on Math Overflow

comment Upper and lower bounds in regards to 0.(9)
@AndréNicolas: I fear you have misinterpreted my method because of my lack of formatting. I mean to say that 10x is equal to 9.(9), and then 9.(9) - x is equal to 9x which must be 9 and 9/9 is 1 - you know, the standard procedure - in which case, I do believe the equation is correct as sdcvvc later 'admitted'! PS If somebody can edit my question so it reads that way that would be great as I am unfamiliar with the formatting code on this site...

comment Upper and lower bounds in regards to 0.(9)
@zyx:I think I've interpreted your comment correctly. Basically, you're saying that the method I have been using only proves that there is a possibility that 0.(9) is equal to 1... This in itself 'boggles my mind' as I never thought that possibilities could be a factor of equations, by some form, surely the answer to any equation is definitive?

@sdcvvc: Thanks, I'm glad it is correct.
