Math formulas may displayed on articles using the <math> tag.

For the technically inclined, MediaWiki (which FANDOM wikis run on) uses a subset of AMS-LaTeX markup, a superset of LaTeX markup which is in turn a superset of TeX markup, for mathematical formulae.

Step by step

  • You need to first be in source editing mode on an article.
  • Use the following format: <math> math to be displayed </math>.
  • For example, '3 x 2 = 6' can be displayed with <math>{3 ~ \times ~ 2 ~ = ~ 6}</math>, which generates:
    $ {3 ~ \times ~ 2 ~ = ~ 6} $
  • For details on how to write the math formulae themselves, see Help:Displaying a formula, on Wikipedia.


  • Large formulae may become wider than the maximum page width. Consider breaking them into multiple lines when possible.
    • Another solution is to place the formula inside a simple div with "overflow-x:scroll" set, so that a scrollbar show up. For example:
<div style="overflow-x:scroll;">
<math> math formula goes here </math>
  • In-line formulae often have poor vertical alignment relative to the rest of the text. A work-around is described on Wikipedia.
  • If the wiki doesn't have a white background, formulas might not display correctly unless placed in a table with a white background, for example:
{| style="background-color: white;"
| <math> ... </math>
