how to put equations into Apple Pages

1. Download and install LaTeX. LaTeX is an Open Source typesetting program intended for producing scientific and academic articles and research work. To get LaTeX, go to:

2. Create a text box in Apple Pages:

3. Type a LaTeX equation into the text box. If you don't know how to do this, install Daum Equation Editor from the app store and click the TeX button (light blue in the grey bar at the bottom):

7. Re-open your document.
