[ Tex] and finish with [ / tex] but without the spaces in the brackets will generate LaTeX code.

Code:

\displaystyle x = \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^{2} - 4ac}}{2a}

And if you see a nice piece of LaTeXing you want to copy; rather than reinvent the wheel, just click on it and the source will come up in a small window - as least on TSR viewed with Firefox.

some times you'll want to turn off displaystyle so for fractions an even quicker way rather than turning it off and on is to write \dfrac in place of \frac to get display style on the fraction only.

Perhaps forget about the car thing... enrol at a local college to try getting a Maths/English GCSE and then go on to do a BTEC in a course you like / an apprenticeship- which should provide you with at least a decent future.

As for the cost, some colleges allow you to do GCSEs for free (if you haven’t got any) so I wouldn’t be too worried about that.

And stop spending hours watching videos on cars lmao. Get a few qualifications and build a future - even if you’re a ‘bus ******’.
