When editing some documents involving **mathematical formulas and symbols in Word**, it can be a challenge to input them because you may not be able to find the corresponding buttons on keyboard. So what’s the best way to insert these relatively difficult formulas? Here are 3 commonly used methods you can try.

## Method 1. Insert Equations Symbols

1. Go to ** Insert** tab and choose

**in**

*Equation***section.**

*Symbols*2. There are some pre-set formulas for you to choose and edit.

3. You can also select ** Insert New Equation**, of course.

4. It will insert a textbox in the document and enable the ** Equation Tools** in

**tab, in where you can insert different kinds of mathematical symbols directly.**

*Design*5. Just hit the symbols you want to insert and input the specific numbers in the corresponding positions of the textbox. In this way you can input any mathematical formula you want.

## Method 2. Ink Equation

If you don’t want to find these symbols separately and rather input the formula by handwriting, you can try the ** Ink Equation** feature in Word 2016 and above versions.

1. Just switch to ** Insert** tab and click

**–**

*Equation***to toggle on**

*Insert New Equation***. Then find**

*Equation Tools***button at the left side of the**

3. If there’s anything wrong, you can click the ** Select and Correct** button and then hit the wrong part to choose the right symbol in the expanded menu.

4. You can also click ** Erase** button to wipe part of the formula, or click

**button to delete all the inks in the writing box.**

*Clear*5. After finishing the handwriting, just hit * Insert* to add the formula to your document.

## Method 3. Microsoft Equation
