Inline tables can be defined like that:


!TABINLINE[This is my inline table, label:inlineTable, style:TAB(9)]

| Tables        | Are           | Cool  |

| ------------- |:-------------:| -----:|

| col 3 is      | right-aligned | $1600 |

| col 2 is      | centered      |   $12 |

| zebra stripes | are neat      |    $1 |


# External Tables and Figures


Tables in a markdown format can be saved in separate files and included in the text. IQReport comes with an R package that provides the functionality to directly export markdown tables from your data frames.


!TAB[This is a nice parameter estimation table, label:parameters](Tables/project_parameters_table.txt)


The same holds for figures. Valid formats are pdf, jpg and png.


!FIG[This is a nice plot, label:vpc, scale:70](Figures/VPC.png)


# Cross-References


Elements with labels can be cross-reference, see @SEC(firstref), @TAB(inlineTable), @TAB(parameters) or @FIG(vpc).


# Equations


Mathematical equations can be define inline, as here $A = \pi r^2$, or in display mode:


$$\frac{dx}{dt} = A(\theta)x + b(\theta)$$
