Math functions need to be within either math tags `\(a^2+b^2=c^2\)`

or double dollar signs `$$a^2+b^2=c^2$$`

. The difference being, the math tag can be used inline and the double dollar sign will put the equation on it's own line and centered on the page.

Example\[a^2+b^2=c^2\]

For expontents, you want to use the ^ symbol. So \(A^x\) would be written like this: `A^x`

. If the exponent contains more than one character, you need to encase them in curly brackets {} so \(A^{xyz}\) would be written like `A^{xyz}`

.

For subscripts, you want to use the _ symbol. So \(A_x\) would be written like this: `A_x`

. If the subscript contains more than one character, you need to encase them in curly brackets {} so \(A_{xyz}\) would be written like `A_{xyz}`

.

Operators work as expected, you can use + - * / within the math tags to add, subtract, multiply and divide. `A+B*C/D`

looks like \(A+B*C/D\)

Symbols such as \(\sqrt{}\) and \(\pi\) are written using LaTeX commands. The two used previously are `\sqrt`

and `\pi`

. A complete list of LaTeX symbols can be found here. So, for example if you typed this within math tags `\sqrt[2]{144*2}`

you would get this\[\sqrt[2]{144*2}\]

\(
\sum f(x) = F(x) + g(x)
\)

$$\sqrt{12*32}$$

\(A^2 + B^2 = C^2\)

$$A_{sv} = (A_{sd} * Sn_w) - I_{vol}$$

Where:

- \(A_{sv}\) = Average snowmelt volume (depth/unit area)
- \(A_{sd}\) = Average snowpack depth at the initiation of the snowmelt period
- \(Sn_w\) = Typical snowpack water at time of melt
- \(I_{vol}\) = Estimated infiltration volume likely to occur during a 10-day melt period.
