Stat Examples

I actually prefer designing examples as close to reality as possible.

The approach on your example is perfect. Let's show the math's beauty and how useful is for solving real situations.

I fixed the large formula in order to make it easier to manage.

I apologize in advance for any grammar mistake. I am improving my english, but sometimes I think in spanish. The good news are "Math is a universal language" :-). I'll appreciate all grammar corrections you do.

Glad you agree about realistic examples. I'm not crazy about the long jump example, but it does the job. I saw your break-up of the long formula. I knew it needed to be done, but my LaTeX is coming along slowly and I needed a bigger block of time to attempt it. Your steps seem just right. I added some more English instruction (your English is fabulous -- I wish I were as fluent in Spanish, I'm just barely a beginner).

I wanted to put each step in the example into a numbered list. I think beginners will find that easier...step 1, step 2... But I can't get the list markup to work. Any thoughts on why it doesn't work? Do we need to use a workaround with math formulas (because of the new line issues)?

Wiki list markup only works on continuous lines. In this case numbered list must be forced by hand.

I figured that might be the case. Thanks.
