I have four dynamic variables in my program,

```
xzero, xone, xtwo, xthree
```

That represent the coefficients of a cubic function. I want to show the actual equation in the HTML, in the following format:

```
xthree*x^3+xtwo*x^2+xone*x+xzero=f(x)
```

but it needs to be able to update with the variables, so I had originally thought that I would do a

```
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = (new equation);
```

But it seems to me that either mathJax doesn't work in javascript, or that I'm not doing it right. The only alternative solution that I could think of is to make four individual div tags per variable, and update them all, but this seems unnecessarily clunky. Could I get some pointers either way as to how I would fix this?

MathJax automagically renders the document when it is loaded, but not later. Try explicitly requesting re-render:

```
document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = "...";
MathJax.Hub.Queue(["Typeset", MathJax.Hub, 'demo']);
```

**EDIT**: After some thinking, I figured you could ask for the render in one element, keep it hidden, then copy the finished markup into another, to prevent flicker:

```
var mathDiv = document.getElementById('math');
var displayDiv = document.getElementById('display');
MathJax.Hub.Queue(["Typeset",MathJax.Hub,"math"]);
MathJax.Hub.Queue(function() {
var math = MathJax.Hub.getAllJax("MathDiv")[0];
var i = 1;
setInterval(function() {
MathJax.Hub.Queue(["Text", math, "\\int_0^{" + i + "} x dx"]);
MathJax.Hub.Queue(function() {
displayDiv.innerHTML = mathDiv.innerHTML;
});
i++;
}, 1000);
});
```

```
#math {
display: none
}
```

```
<script type="text/javascript"

<div id="math">$$$$</div>
<div id="display"></div>
```
