# LaTeX code for the most common formulas

If you have somewhere a very long formula, please share it with us. This will save time for everybody! Just edit this page and paste you code at inside the input-box, if you don't know how to use the wiki-code correctly.

## How to use the formulas

Just copy the text from the column LaTex Input into your text-object input-box. If the formula should be dynamic you need to insert the object instead of the variables that are used here.
