Before we start this unit, let's take another look at MathQuill. In the last section, we were able to type in inequalities and interval notations for our answers. Now, we're going to try some fractions. In a fraction in MathQuill is very similar to what you've done in the past. You simply going to type in the numerator then the forward slash and then the denominator. Mathquill will do all the hard work for you and will make your fraction look nice. But sometimes we don't want just a fraction, sometimes you want a little bit more. After typing in a fraction, you'll notice that your cursor bar is in the denominator. To move the cursor bar from the denominator, simply hit the over arrow key and it will shift back up to the main line. And now you're ready to continue typing just like before. You would type x plus sign and then 1. And it turns out anytime you're typing inside a MathQuill box, you can just use your arrow keys as navigation. Try playing around with MathQuill and use these arrow keys. Don't worry about making a mistake because you can always hit Delete. When you play around with it, you'll notice that the cursor bar will move up and down inside of a fraction. You can even hit the carrot symbol and then you can create an exponent cursor. We won't cover this now, but if you want to play around with it, feel free to. We'll do this again later.

Geat work if you got each of these. For the last one you just needed to type a move our cursor from down in the denominator to up here next to the fraction. Next you would type an x a minus sign, the number eleven a forward slash and a three. This would finish out your expression.
