But you have entered formula twice, once for calculation purpose, and
second time for display. I wished to enter it once, then by some mean
we should able display it and get the calculations done (if not
comples like \int, may be simple like division, multiplication etc).
So that chances of error are eliminated.

For doing thing as you suggested, I prefer to generate .tex file from
C++ or PHP, as I am not that good in LaTeX.

I am working in an environment where no one uses LaTeX. So I am also
not able to work much with LaTeX. But when ever I plan to do something
serious work, I have to thing about LaTeX.
