# Anki error message when i use latex

Hello,
I wanted to use Anki to learn my math lessons, so I had to use MiKTeX but after installing the necessary programs an error message was displayed. I searched on different forums but the solution didn’t work for me so here is my error message and i don’t understand if someone can help me.
cordially

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.21 (MiKTeX 20.7)

Looks like you simply didn’t close the math environment. If you want more details, you have to provide the actual LaTeX input.

oh thank you very much!
I started the latex this morning and so I didn’t pay attention that I needed a terminal to close my line. I was in a hurry and I didn’t follow the tutorials properly.

That seems to have been ambiguous. What I meant was: When you write you have to write as well at some point. (Same with the shorthand `.)
However, since this is not problem with Anki but with LaTeX, there are more suitable places to ask about this. But like you said, a proper LaTeX tutorial will probably clear everything up.
