How do I write this equation in LaTeX?

Vo = ( R1/( R1+R4)-R2/(R2+R3) ) x Vs

  • Negative points seem unfair. We'd like to encourage people to use LaTeX and not run off people just because they don't know how to get started. The op doesn't know what to do. Minimally you could say something helpful. – A.Ellett Apr 9 '15 at 3:51
