I didn't mean to sit on PrimeFan's correction for a whole month, but these things came up in my life and I was always forgetting stuff for like the past month, etc. I imagine there is some document somewhere on this website that explains how to put in pictures. I just have no idea where it's at, and so I have no idea how to put pictures on PlanetMath either. I think the entry on Gauss has a bitmap picture of him, but for something like a diagram is there some kind of vector thingie I could use?

Maybe there's a better way, but I've always created a JPEG of the graphics and included it using \includegraphics{foo.jpg}. I've never done this in PlanetMath, only in my own documents, so I have no idea if it works here.

I did spend some time on the web investigating how to do this, and all other methods seem to be even more klunky or difficult.

For the type of picture you'd want for this article, I would recommend a program like Ipe. It's a GPLed vector drawing program available for several systems that plays nice with LaTeX. Consult http://ipe.compgeom.org for more details.

It is in the documentation section, alongside the
other site documents:

Oh thank you very much for that link! That's precisely what I need to read! Thank you!

I'll consider that after I read the PM guidelines rspuzio pointed out to me.
