    Extension of the Square Root sign in Microsoft Word 2010.

    This is more of a technical question that I'm hoping some of you might have an answer for.

    I'm trying to use the distance formula in math, but I can't seem to get the square root sign to extend all the way across an equation that I'm writing.

    For example:

    MN = sqrt(4 - (-0.5))^2 + (1 - 1.5)^2

    I can only get the square root sign to extend across the first half of the equation up until the + sign, and I need to get the square root sign to extend all the way across the entire equation.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    This is a pure guess. I know nothing about symbols in Word. But this works in LaTeX.

    MN = sqrt{(4 - (-0.5))^2 + (1 - 1.5)^2}
