Mathematics suggestion for Yahoo Answers?
Topic: Use case symbols
July 17, 2019 / By Abnor Question:
I think they should include symbols like
- plus or minus
- square root
- inequality signs
I think it would make things a lot clearer... they could possibly set up a code so that you would need to type something like
or something like that. What do you guys think?
I think it would save a lot of time instead of having to copy/paste.

Do you copy and paste? I just type in the HTML codes.
ex: V = π∫y^2 dx
x = (-b ± √(b^2 - 4ac)) / 2a
The HTML codes start with an ampersand & and end with a semicolon ;. The codes for some of the more frequently used symbols (shown below without the & and ; marks) are:
α alpha (and similarly for other lower-case Greek letters, including of course π pi)
Ω Omega (and similarly for other upper-case Greek letters)
∉ notin (this one doesn't actually display correctly on my browser, so I tend not to use it - it should be the ∈ symbol negated)
∇ nabla - OK, perhaps I'm straying from "more frequently used" here. But I suppose if I'm including this one I must also include ∂ part.

Y staff do not moderate YA, WE do - we are all Community Moderators and this is the hundredth time explaining this
thousands of violations pouring in every day - there are 200 million of us and only a handful of Y employees - just think about that for a minute...
and try to figure out how fast Yahoo would have to close down YA due to it being overrun by spam and trolls, not to mention porn and extremely explicit and vulgar sexual content
trusted members EARNED that trust and the ability to delete what they report by ACCURATELY reporting thousands of violations with almost none being overturned on appeal
those who report poorly quickly lose their status at trusted members
why do you think that a Q is immune from being reported once it has a BA? - there is no statute of limitations on violations - ones from eight years ago are reportable and should be reported as no one wants to do a search and find an old post with porn or racism in it!
this is why we need to see the WHOLE post:
Who do you think the intended audience is?
What are three things the writer does to reach that audience?
What appears to be the writers purpose?
And lastly do you think the writer achieves that purpose? Why?
Best answer and ten points to whoever can all answer the questions I stated in this question :-)"
this is clearly a solicitation for homework, given the formality of the long list of questions you asked under the main header - your one answer showing in the cache is a violation but that person knows you are soliciting homework
then you defiantly posted it again but left out the list of questions, but turned it into a rant violation by lashing out at the douchebag who reported it
well, guess what, that douchebag is no douchebag but a seasoned reporter who knew this was a violation and lo and behold, you lost your appeal
145 appeals on 145 violations or 145 appeals on this one? either way, that should tell you you need to figure out what you're doing in this site
We already have codes for it, so they don't really care about it.
We're not the only sections on Yahoo! Answers, so I doubt they will fustrate (did I spell that wrong?) over this minor topic, when they have to deal with the bugs going around here.
You could search some place to find the alt-codes, but I wouldn't bother. Just use the symbols we use now. Just say pi for pi, sqrt for square root, and etc.
But I do agree on the fact that they should create this little box with all the symbols =D!

I dont think you can stop cheating in school. There are too many students that are too lazy to learn for themselves. They just want the easy way out. These students will go thru life on welfare because they are too lazy to get a job. I dont think they should allow Computers or calculators in the class rooms.

I think I don't need help with my homework, so it matters little to me..... even though I love math.
