I was just wondering, how do I type exponants, radicals, etc, on the keyboard? Is there any way I can type them on microsoft word?

I've been typing up some math notes but I'm forced to draw tiny block letters and radical signs and it looks kind of sloppy.

A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.

I don't have Microsoft Word, but I just read there is an "Equation Editor". I don't know how old the webpage I was reading was.

In Word, you can type in the thing that you want exponentiated, highlight and right-click it and edit the font to be super- or sub-scripted.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

There is a plugin called Microsoft Equation in Microsoft Word.

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away.

May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.

It may not have been around when he asked that question.

I sometimes went to this website: https://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php and copied and pasted the equations. Microsoft Word accepts them.

Oh... Now, I only use CodeCogs if I don't know the Latex coding for something. That's about it...
