GeoGebra's Text tool uses a subset of LaTeX commands, so not all commands and packages are included.

I'm sure that \begin{array} is supported. If you need to align your equations, you can use that syntax instead of \begin{equation}. Or use the TableText command.

Anyway, if you explain in further detail what you want to get, maybe we can help.

Yes, \begin{array} is fine with the Latx editor.

Here is what i AM DOING:

\left\{

a+aq+aq^2+aq^3+aq^4=93\\

\underline{\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:aq+\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:aq^3\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:=30\:}/:aq^2

\right\}


and I am trying to have brackets only on the right side and to add the minus sign to it


Do you have an idea?

thank you

Use \left. instead of \left{ to omit the left {


FormulaText("\left. a+aq+aq^2+aq^3+aq^4=93\\ \underline{\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:aq+\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:aq^3\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:\:=30\:}/:aq^2 \right\}")

Sorry, not sure what you mean by the minus sign. Maybe just upload a hand-drawn version of what you want?

or maybe

TableText({{"a+aq+aq^2+aq^3+aq^4=93", "aq+aq^3=30", "aq^2"}, {"=", "=", ""}, {93, 30, ""}}, "}_0010v")

GG prefer to use tabletext from spreadsheet

see definitions of A1,A2,A3

and basic properties of text1
