If you are editing a document involving math, you may need to input some mathematical symbols including fractions. In this post, I’d like to introduce the way to **insert a fraction in Word 2016**.

Click ** Object** in

**tab. There’re two options in the drop-down list, choose**

*Insert*

*Object…*When the ** Object** window pops out, find

**in the**

*Microsoft Equation 3.0***list and then hit**

*Object type***.**

*OK*If you need to insert a lot of mathematical symbols in the document, check ** Display as icon**, thus a shortcut icon will be created on the page you are editing. You can then activate

**by double-clicking it.**

*Equation Editor*If you didn’t check ** Display as icon**, then you’ll see a textbox and a tool bar on the page. Select the symbol you need and modify the number in the textbox. In this way you can insert all kinds of math symbols and equations to your document.
