    Cubed and Squared Symbols

    Hi Folks,

    Im wondering how do you make those symbols in Word to show a number is cubed or squared? or raised to some power?

    We are allowed to write our formulas on paper for our test tuesday we just can't have the answer to the formula.

    So for example in type i need to be able to write like

    A Squared + 2AB + B squared = (A+B)Squared

    so how do I make those symbols on the computer? I looked in symbols and I didn't see any so not sure where im suppose to look.

    TIA

    Neo

    hmmm that is not working on my laptop.

    I figured i can use superscript but that is a pain in the rump! cuz i have to change the thingy each time. grrr. ALT is not working.

    how do you do the other numbers like 4 and 5 or raised to any power.

    like

    A raised to the 10 power
    or any other number other than just cubed or squared?

    well thats a bit different :/
    When you do the alt+0178 numbers you must use the number pad to do the 0178, the top row keys don't work. Generally you'll have a 'Fn' key and there will be some numbers imprinted on some of the alpha keys... again a real pain.

    Other than that I'm not sure
    The only way I know is the superscript unless there is a key combination you can use that I don't know.

    Only suggestion I would have would be to make the superscript thing for each number 2 to 10, then copy them somewhere so you can paste 'em at will. A macro would do the job as well, and you could give each one a hotkey.

    There is prolly and add-on that mathematicians use somewhere. never seen one, though.

    Alrighty thanks. i'll figure out how to turn the numpad on. I need to keep plugging away at my homework. :sigh: Already been at it for 4 hours. This algebra is getting to me. Accounting is so much easier.

    BTW, the ▓ & │ are under normal text in insert symbol (fifth line down for me, just next to ▒), not under symbol in insert symbol.

    Does that make sense??

    Thats how I got the 0178 and 0179, but that doesn't help her get ^4 and above.

    I'm in Office2000 at present. I assume Office XP still allows macros, so you could record some if you had lots of them to do.
