# I am new to LaTeX [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

I am new to LaTex. I am writing a paper on a number theory topic. What I know so far is that I need to construct a preamble for my paper. I don't know what packages I need for my paper. What packages should I include? keep in mind this is an undergrad paper I am writing.

• I wouldn't worry too much about what packages to include for now. Just start writing with the basic structure \documentclass{article} \begin{document} ... \end{document} and solve the problems (with the required packages) as they come along. – Troy Nov 4 '17 at 4:15
