I wanted to draw the working column for this method of finding square roots: http://youtu.be/UnshaiwljGY

Here is an image example of the process:


But I am unable to draw it because I am new to LaTeX tabulars, arrays and stuff.

Also, in the classic style of it, in the 2nd step, instead of underlining the number we have to guess is put in a circle. How do I circle a number?

Thank you in advance for your help.

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Can you provide a direct link to the question on the other site and explain what you mean by "compatible" – Andrew Swann Nov 13 '14 at 14:07
  • There are known limitations on the latex that can be used on Math.SE and I assure you, a link to that question won't help you because all it asks is "Find the square root of 1000" which I want to demonstrate elaborately. – Nick Nov 13 '14 at 14:10
  • MathJax is a limited TeX emulator. So if someone is going to provide a solution it is most often with additional packages and that will render your intention useless. There are not many macros available in MathJax so usage of graphical components is (practically ) impossible. You can fake it via tabulars but I don't think they are also implemented anyways. – percusse Nov 13 '14 at 14:53
  • @percusse: Exactly, I'm asking how to fake it on there but if that's too difficult then fine. I'll be happy with code that I can compile on TexMaker. I'll just add it as an image file. – Nick Nov 13 '14 at 15:18
  • To whomever it may concern, I have removed my requirement for the code to be compliant with MathJax. I now only require a solution that can be compiled in TexMaker – Nick Nov 13 '14 at 17:00
