Summary: Math 430 Homework 1 Section 1.3 Sally Student
1. This sample document provides a template for writing a LATEXdocument suitable for homework
assignments and projects in Math 475. First be sure to put your name and the assignment
above. The first few "problems" will explain how the document works. Then there will be some
"problems" that illustrate various notations and formatting environments. Compare what is
in the typeset version of this document to the file latexsample.tex. Note in particular that
anything typed after a percent sign in the text file is treated as a comment and is ignored by
the compiler. Comments in the text file refer both to LATEXand to hints about writing good
solutions and proofs.
(a) To list things in numerical order, use the "enumerate" command. This can be nested as
(b) To list things that are not in numerical order, you can use the "itemize" command.
· If you don't put anything after the item, it will look like this with a bullet.
Problem 1.3.1 If you want to put something else, other than a number, letter or bullet,
use the description command, and put what you want in square brackets.
Problem 1.3.2 This is what you should use if you need numbers that aren't in numerical
order, such as homework or project exercises.
(c) Don't forget to end each enumerate and itemize loop.
(d) If you don't, you will get an error when you compile.
2. The very basics of LATEX(compare the typeset document and the text file):
