# Latex Rendering

Can anyone tell me why

$$\displaystyle P(x \leq 3 | x \geq 2)=\frac{0.01(3^2-2^2)}{0.01(10^2-2^2)}=\frac{5}{96} \$$ renders correctly while

$$\displaystyle P(x \geq 5 | 3 \leq x \leq 8)=\frac{0.01(8^2-5^2)}{0.01(8^2-3^2)}=\frac{39}{55}$$

does not?

You may have to quote and preview to see what I mean.

Try the "Disable smilies" option. An 8 followed by closing parentheses is interpreted as a smilie.

Edit: whoops, didn't notice you already displayed it Mark....

There's no need to disable smilies to avoid this problem; just put a space after the 8. The space does not appear in the generated image.
