Click on it and check. I edited it a little. Braces.

He edited so you'd know what you did wrong.

Code:
x = \dfrac{1}{9}\left(-2-106 \sqrt[3]{ \dfrac{2}{9\sqrt{7437} -83} }+ 2^{2/3} \sqrt[3]{ 9\sqrt {7437} -83 }\right)
Yours

Code:
x = \dfrac{1}{9} \left( -2 -106 \sqrt[3] \dfrac{2}{9\times \sqrt{7437} -83} + 2^{2/3} \times \sqrt[3] 9 \times \sqrt {7437} -83 \right)

Unparseable or potentially dangerous latex formula. Error 4: no dvi output from LaTeX. It is likely that your formula contains syntax errors or worse.x = \dfrac{1}{9} \left( -2 -106 \sqrt[3] {\dfrac{2}{9\times \sqrt{7437} -83} + 2^{2/3} \times \sqrt[3] 9 \times \sqrt {7437} -83 \right)

i've broken it

If you want more practice lol

let's do this sh*t

you can simplify it a bit if you want. algebraically.

we ****ed this one up too ;(

it worked

trying fractions

Not sure if anyone's mentioned this yet but the best way of practising LaTeX in my opinion is downloading a program like TexMaker and doing your maths problems on it. Takes ages at the start but you'll soon get to the point where you can input data extremely rapidly. And your homework will look so impressive!

Takes a bit more work than Latex on TSR because of some other little code snippets you've got to worry about but you can use it to export pdf documents so it's genuinely useful.

just a little thing to do to help me when i come and ask for maths help then i can use the proper signs as such

thanks

\displaystyle \frac{g}{\omega^2} \left( \sqrt{ \left( \frac{\omega^2 x}{g} \right)^2+1} - \ln \left( \frac{ \sqrt{ \left( \frac{\omega^2 x}{g} \right)^2+1} }{ \frac{\omega^2 x}{g} } \right) \right) + C

\dfrac{g}{\omega ^2}\left( \sqrt \left( \dfrac {\omega ^2 x}{g}\right)^2 +1 - in\left(\dfrac {\sqrt \left( {\omega ^2 x}{g}\right)^2 +1}{\dfrac \omega ^2 x}{g}}\right)right) +C

I know, just saying that being able to use a LaTeX compiler is a genuinely useful skill that doesn't require a lot of effort on top of what you already know which could help you impress in the future
