Hello, duckpluckie!
You can still type mathematical expression . . . <b>if</b> you're careful.My computer doesn't have the symbols for math
Use ^ for exponents . . . and use LOTS of parenthese.
14 + 3^2 . . . means: 14, plus 3² . . . or 14 + 9 = 23
If you want "fourteen plus 3, all squared", write: (14 + 3)^2
"14 plus 3 squared divided 6: 14 + 3²/6 = 14 + (9/6) = 14 + 1½ = 15½
If you want "fourteen plus 3 squared, all divided by 6", write: (14 + 3^2)/6
but it is the second problem you listed:
My book says . .?? . . . no way!
