# Scenario

Create your technical paper by adding formulas and referring to formulas that you have already mentioned using* LaTeX Math* features.

The following steps demonstrate how to create and reuse the content using the *LaTeX Math Block* macro, and *LaTeX Math Block Reference *macro features:

| ## Step 1
Navigate to the technical paper and click edit. Go to the content where you need to insert the formula. Type ‘/' and search for the *LaTeX Math Block*macro or use the '+’ option in the main toolbar and search for the*LaTeX Math Block*macro.Select the *LaTeX Math Block*macro.Type the equation in LaTeX formatted math. A preview is generated. Choose the alignment from the top right corner options. Specify an anchor. By specifying the anchor you can refer to the equation on a different page or the same page.
