### How do you write an equation in LaTeX?

For writing math equations in LaTeX, there are two writing modes: the inline mode and the display mode. The inline mode is used to write formulas that are part of the text and the display mode is used to write expressions that are not part of the text and hence are put on different lines.

**How do you center an equation in LaTeX?**
