# Math & Equations

Curvenote supports and automatically renders $\LaTeX$ math symbols in either inline math or distinct equations. When equations are created, they can also be numbered and referenced within the text.

## Inline Math¶

You can create math equations inline with the rest of your text in Curvenote such as: $\int_{a}^{b} x^2 \,dx$. Inline math can be created using

• → ➕ Insert Menu → $\bf{\Sigma}$ Inline Math
• /Inline Math
• Keyboard shortcut 

## Equations¶

You can also create stand-alone equations that can be numbered and referenced throughout your text:

$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}$

Equations can be created using

• Editing Toolbar → ➕ Insert Menu → $\bf{\Sigma}$ Equation Block
• Command Menu /Equation
• Keyboard shortcut
