Owlstown supports writing \(\LaTeX\) math in blocks that have text:

- Text block
- Callout block
- Markdown block

Owlstown uses MathJax to support this feature.

## How to use

To add math to a text block, use delimiters at start and end of your equations.

**For inline equations, use \( and \).**

This equation code `\( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \)`

renders as \( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \)

**For centered equations, use \[ and \].**

This equation code `\[ x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \]`

renders as:

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

## Markdown support

The delimiters in Markdown are different from text blocks. Notice the two backslashes.

**For inline equations, use \\( and \\).**

This equation code `\\( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \\)`

renders as \( ax^2 + \sqrt{bx} + c = 0 \)

**For centered equations, use \\[ and \\].**

This equation code `\\[ x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a} \\]`

renders as:

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