**Entering Mathematical Equations**

If you prefer to start with a clean slate, click Insert New Equation or, more simply, click

directly on Equation on the Insert tab instead of clicking the arrow next to it.

When you have inserted an equationâ€”using one from the equation gallery or by starting

freshâ€”you can click anywhere within it to select the equation or a part of it. The ribbon

then sprouts an Equation Tools tab, as shown in Figure 5-3.

The Tools group on the Equation Tools Design tab shown in Figure 5-3 has commands for

inserting a new equation (it can be inserted within an existing equation or it can replace

the existing equation, depending on the selection) and formatting it. Click the arrow button

in the lower right corner of the Tools group to open the Equation Options dialog box.
