How do you type the power of in word? algebra
I'm trying to type in word using algebra figures example the power of 2 ex:
(2x2)=4 (2x2x2)=8 (2x2x2x2)=16 I know theres a way where I can show it as 2 with a smaller 2 to the right at the top of the other 2 but I don't know how or where the command is. It will let you do the power of 2 using simbols but theres not 3,4,5....

How do you type the power of in word? algebra
Have you tried using the Superscript option? For whatever power you need,
literally type it next to the digit. For exampe, for (2x2) you would type "22" for (2x3) type "23" and so on. Highlight the digit that symbolizes the power (the 2nd digit) and go to Format, then Font, then click Superscript. I hope that's what you were looking for. Good luck!

FWIW through symbols you can get powers from 03, i.e., 0123. If you
need others frequently you might want to make a character style with the superscript formatting. Then just type a number for your power and apply that style to it. "jcclin" wrote in message ...
