Alternatively to actually learning LaTeX (or something to help whiile you do), there's handy tools like this one that can generate the LaTeX for you. There's probably better ones out there, I found this one through a quick google search. :)

Remark: I don't know about better since I only ever used it, but I did mention daum in my opening post.

Quite embarrassingly I forgot to address the "dash" symbol. Probably because I hated it until recently.

This guide can do with some support now. If there's anything symbols you would like to see, please request it.

The binomial coefficient is hiding here:

Binomial coefficient
Similar to how fractions may be typed, a convenient way to automatically bring out the binomial coefficient nCr can be achieved using the \binom command
Code: [Select]
[tex]\binom{n}{k}=\binom{n}{n-k}[/tex]

But as for writing \( ^n C_k \) like that, I didn't see any point in doing them because there's no shortcut (or even proper way) of writing it. (Reason is because internationally nobody uses that notation.) They can only be typed using old methods, so they didn't really deserve their own section in my opinion. But thanks for the remark.

Edit: However I will make a remark in how the factorial is just typed the old way.
