# How do I get latex output to show up on tex.SE? [duplicate]

This is a question from someone who is obviously quite new to tex.SE. (BTW: this site is awesome!) If I am writing a question, how do I get Latex output to show up on this site? I know how to write the code, but I can't seem to get the results to display.

For example, I can type:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
$$x^2 + y^2 = 4$$
\end{document}


but no output actually shows up. Maybe I'm not explaining myself properly...please let me know if the question is not explained well. Thanks so much in advance!

• Compile, open the pdf, take a screen shot, and press the rectangle next to {} (which you used for formatting codes) or press Cntrl+G. – user11232 Aug 1 '14 at 15:42
