testing \latex \LaTeX

does anyone know how to label equations and reference them?

\usepackage{cleveref}

....

\begin{equation}

1+1=2.\label{eq:1}

\end{equation}

\Cref{eq:1} is an amazing new discovery; before Max Kaye, no one grasped the perfect and utter truth of \cref{eq:1}.

\usepackage{cleveref}

Cool, thanks. I think I was missing `\usepackage{cleveref}`

. I actually wrote the post in latex (the post for which I asked this question), but the lesswrong docs on using latex are lacking. for example they don't tell you they support importing stuff and don't list what is supported.

\Cref{eq:1} is an amazing new discovery; before Max Kaye, no one grasped the perfect and utter truth of \cref{eq:1}.

I use crefs in the .tex file linked above. I suppose I should have been more specific and asked "does anyone know how to label equations and reference them **on lesswrong**?" instead.
