This is a documentation subpage for Template:Equation (see that page for the template itself).It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page. |

This equation turns text that a user specifies into italicized text. This simulates the text of math equations. Note that this template will not evaluate the expression for you (in which case, see Help:Calculation).

## Example

Some example usages are:

Template | Result |
---|---|

{{Equation}} | E=MC² |

{{Equation|cos(x/2 + 5)}} | cos(x/2 + 5) |

Note: | When encountering problems, like when the template shows {{{1}}}, you must place it as a property in the parameter "1". Therefore, `{{Equation|x+y}}` turns into `{{Equation|1=x+y}}` . This forces the template to show all the text. |

Note: | It is recommended to use the LaTeX math plugin instead (<math>...</math>) |
