Writing an equation in a word document can be a really painful process for a first time user. I recall, that it took me a *whole* year to learn that it is possible to write equations and other math functions in word!
If you still haven’t found out how to write equations in words, here is a quick tutorial. It shall be noted that this tutorial is only applicable to 2007 Office and higher versions only.
First of all, open a word document. Then go to the “Insert” Tab. Go the far right of this row and there will be a button saying “Equation”. If you press it you will see some build-in equations, like trig functions, the Pythagorean Theorem, etc. In order to write your own equation simply press the “Insert New Equation” Button and you will be able to write a very nice equation in word.
Now, let’s say that you want to post this equation on a website or somewhere else, where you don’t need to have it in a .doc format. You would prefer if it was an image. There are some premium word to image converters but they cost money and we don’t have money. Hopefully, there is a way around it. Simply, convert the Word document to a .PDF document(there are plenty of converters on the web for free) and then convert the .PDF document to .jpeg (image).
Now, the original document has been converted to a nice image that it is easy to use.
