**Adding an equation to a shape**

Adding an equation to a shape

You can use Excel 2013 to analyze your data in many ways, but it

can be difficult to understand exactly how your formulas

calculate their values. If you want to display the equation that you use

to calculate a value, you can add that mathematical equation to

the interior of a shape. To add an equation to a shape, click the

shape, and then click the Insert tab. In the Symbols group, click

Equation, and then click the Equation Tools Design tab on the

ribbon to display the equation-editing interface.
