I'm new to HubPages, and my interests include science, education and technology, which means that, if I am going to be writing hubs, it would be under these categories. So, I searched for 'math equations' because math equations will certainly feature in my hubs. However, my search returned very few results, of which only one discussed how to place equations in Blogger.
Am I missing something or not searching correctly? Can one in fact place a math equation in a hub without resorting to the obvious (and not-so-nice) solution of inserting it as an image?
As far as I am aware - you are stuck with writing it elesewhere and make an image of it. sorry and welcome to Hubpages
It's very difficult with the kind of writing software we have here. Write your formulas elsewhere and transfer them here as images. The best you can do here is something like this:
I have some equations that look downright silly too I know what you mean but least am sure HP is working on it
Thanks for your comments.
I thought about the matter this morning and decided that one could compromise by placing a list of all the equations (with numbers) in a figure, instead of trying to intersperse them throughout the text. One could then merely refer to the equations by number. Of course, it still remains to produce a high-quality image. I have done some work on this in the past, when I used LaTeX to generate (nice) equations, convert them to postscript, copy them into GIMP for resizing etc., then saving them as JPG or PNG images. I'll try this on HubPages.
Hmmm... maybe there is a hub here?
Why not have an image for each equation? You can have as many as you wish and move them around where you need them in the hub.
Thanks for pointing this out. I had a quick look at the typical hub layout options, and it seemed that there were fixed positions for images. But what you say, changes the picture (no pun). I'll play around with that when I write my first hub.

may I ask why?With all the hassle just to get a piece published, from overtly strict copy right laws, now to this. I now wonder if the place is even worth the hassle.

Hi Hubbers,I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Why do we do, what we do? (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

I posted this a year or so ago, but I thought I'd repost for those who were interested in drawing Pinterest traffic. Using this method my highest pinned hub has around 43,000 pins, with my second highest being around...

I'm pretty new at this, so I can really only gauge my hubs' performance against one another!This one is one of my earliest hubs, yet it has fewer views than ones that I've published just a few days...

With all the changes due to the merger with Squidoo, I thought some of the incoming writers could benefit from a few tips to help them get started with writing here.Pay attention to the little writing guide in the upper...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the...
