1. LaTeX (TeXMaker) question.
I have a 2x2 matrix written in TeXMaker but the elements in the matrix are really long, does anyone know how I can make it so it fits on the page? It keeps cutting off because of the long elements in there.

What do you mean? What are the entries of the matrix? If the entries can't fit on a page then they can't fit on a page What's the code you're using?

I have a feeling many people are going to be disappointed when they realise it's not the kind of latex they were hoping for.

Hey, I've attached a picture below, it shows how the matrix is like...but I really need this is fit inside the page.

Your real problem is that the entries of the matrix are too long. I doubt you can fit that on a page. One possibility is to add "\small" after the \begin{eqnarray*} bit and see if that happens. Another is to reduce the margin size by adjusting the headers appropriate, namely \setlength{\oddsidemargin}{***} and \setlength{\evensidemargin}{***} , where *** might be something like 0pt or -20pt or whatever. But ultimately I doubt it'll work; those entries just seem too long!

You could mitigate it by putting " where " etc.

Yeah, it's just too long, I tried -110 and some bits on the left started going off the page and the matrix still didn't fit on the right...couldn't even see the end of it with -110! I think I'll use what you suggested. Thanks.
