## A list of common algebraic operators in LaTeX

This is video #14 in a series of twenty one by Dr Vincent Knight of Cardiff University.

Here we present a list of algebraic operators commonly used in LaTeX equations. These include

$a+b$ $a-b$ $-a$ $a\cdot b$ $a\times b$ $a/b$ ${a\over b}$ $\frac{a}{b}$

The final two in the list both show how to write fractions in LaTeX; the use of `\frac`

is more widely used than `\over`

. In the next two videos we'll see how to include integrals and matrices.

To try this for yourself, the example from the video is provided as a template. Simply open the 'Operators' example (opens in a new tab/window), and get started using the free online writeLaTeX editor.
