# Does Math like $f (x) = e^{- x}$ work on askbot?

let's try:

$\mathcal{M}[f] (s) = \int_0^{\infty} x^{s - 1} f (x) dx .$

$\mathcal{M} \left[ \frac{d}{d x} f (x) \right] = - (s - 1) F (s - 1),\quad \mathcal{M} \left[ x^{\mu} f (x) \right] = F (s + \mu) .$

$\sum_{k=0}^{p-1} C_kx^k\equiv \frac{1-(1-4x)^{(p+1)/2}}{2x}-x^{p-1}\quad\bmod (p,x^p).$

Give it a try - post some "answers" and see how it works for you.

**edit:** here are instructions to enable MathJax.

There is a caveat - if you right-click and choose some setting - django may sign you out. It's due to the bug in python Cookie module or MathJax cookie name. `MathJax`

wants to set up cookie named `mjx:menu`

, but python does not like `:`

in the name. I have found the place in `MathJax`

where that character can be replaced with say `-`

, but rebuilding `MathJax`

is not trivial - not all build scripts are present in the repository.

If the site "kicks you out" this way - delete cookie for askbot.org named as above and re-signin.

This issue in MathJax will hopefully be solved very soon.

## Comments

I dont see any formulas but only pure LaTex script, or is math not enabled on this installation?

Tuta, we will fix this tomorrow, some things got out of hand when we migrated some software. Mathjax should work fine. It works on http://ask.sagemath.org running a bit older version of askbot.
