I see my dots didn't come out right. I need three dots going on an angle towards the left.

Thanks,
Nancy

Hi Nancy,

the mathdots package provides \iddots for this.

This is how you can do it yourself:

  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \newcommand*{\rddots}[1]{\cdot^{\cdot^{\cdot^{#1}}}}
  3. \begin{document}
  4. \[
  5. x^{x^{\rddots{x}}}
  6. \]
  7. \end{document}
