# How to write a formula in the Word? There's an answer!

All modern text editors (of course,it's more appropriate to call them word processors) are becoming more universal every year. For example, today they have such functions that were previously inherent only in expensive and high-quality publishing packages, as well as CMS-systems for content management on the site.

This allows users to perform hugea variety of work, often without leaving the window of a single text editor. That is why we will answer the question of how to write a formula in the Word, as often users have insurmountable difficulties in the way of solving this problem.

If you already guessed, then we talk with youwill be about the most common text editor, Microsoft Word-2010. It is no exaggeration to say that the very name of this program for the whole world has become a household name, and it is almost impossible to imagine a computer in the office without it at all.

Let's return to our formula editor, which isin Word from those times when the computers of the few users at that time were Windows 3.1. Of course, since then he has received a lot of new opportunities and comparing the old and the new package is just silly.

In particular, in the mathematical editorthere are new templates that allow minimizing the need for calculations when performing typical mathematical tasks. That's why we will consider this version of the editor.

Before proceeding to explain how"Word" write a formula, you need to talk about two ways to accomplish this task. The first one is good for creating new formulas. Go to the "Insert" tab, and then find the "Formula" button in the long list. If you click not on the button itself, but on a small drop-down list to the right of it, then, besides the possibility of creating the formula itself, you can use their sample templates. The advantage of the latest version of Word is that the user can easily create their own formulas, manually placing them in a drop-down list.

**The second way to insert formulas**

Since in the "Word" write a formula quite oftenit is necessary not from scratch, but using a ready-made mathematical expression in the text, the developers have provided for this case. To do this, simply click on the formula in the text, using the left mouse button. The program recognizes it, and then the "Work with formulas" appears in the tabs, containing a lot of tools intended just for editing and editing of various mathematical calculations.

Thanks to the efforts of hundreds of designers and othersexperts, in the line with the formulas, at first glance, there is very little information. This feeling is created due to the fact that they are all conveniently "scattered" in categories. If you do not know how to write a formula in Word, then it's better to spend a few minutes and understand the application's functionality.

The most common mathematical expressions (functions in trigonometry, fractional expressions) are represented as separate buttons, for convenience of users combined with drop-down lists.

As already mentioned above, you can not choose from themonly the simplest variant, but also a separate sample template. However, the name "typical" does not mean at all that you can not change its elements in places or in some other way carry out its editing. The number of standard expressions is even able to satisfy even the practicing scientist-mathematician, since in Vord the formula is most often required to insert a formula.

The new editor differs from the old version alsothat allows you to adjust almost all the nuances of the appearance of expressions. If in the old application you had to use separate tools to change the font, style and color of the text, you can successfully apply the font settings located on the "Home" tab in its new version.
