# some equation wp-latex seems not to support…

Hi all,

I have serious problem understanding why a latex formula such:

\frac{\sin(x) – \sin(x)}{x} \asymp_{0} \frac{(x – \frac{x^{3}}{3!} + \frac{x^{5}}{5!}) – (x-\frac{x^{3}}{3!})}{x} \asymp_{0} \frac{x^{4}}{5!}

does not parse in wordpress.com

I’m using the online posting (so i actually write $latex “latexformula”$ ). All the branches of this equation correctly parse if posted alone.

What is the problem?

Thanks, Giulio

P.S. Obviusly I know that the equation makes no sense, it was a undergrad intended example of a mathematical monstruosity.

The blog I need help with is diamoinumeri.wordpress.com.

Ya, that looks complicated, but I think I have a solution. WordPress.com doesn’t use it like you do, I think. I don’t have an answer other than that.
Good Luck!

Hi Giulio. Remove the quotation marks and it should work just fine (I tried it):
$latex \frac{\sin(x) - \sin(x)}{x} \asymp_{0} \frac{(x - \frac{x^{3}}{3!} + \frac{x^{5}}{5!}) - (x-\frac{x^{3}}{3!})}{x} \asymp_{0} \frac{x^{4}}{5!}$
