I dont now where to begin so...

ex.

```
<*cell* M8> 2x^2-10x+8=0
What ive done so far in the cells: I4,J4,K4;
<*cell* I4>=LEFT(M8;1) returns the value 2
<*cell* J4>=MID(M8;5;3) returns the value -10
<*cell* K4>=MID(M8;10;1) returns the value 8
```

and so far, its correct! (thats the answers i look for)

But i want a more dynamic function:

ex.2

"But! if the cells M8 text, value, would be" -15x^2+101x-18=0
the *left*, *mid*-functions would not deliver the answers i would look for.

Im looking for an function that can make all of this true (bad joke)

- search"from left"stop before
**x^n**return the value(-s) to designated cell (ex. I4) - search after
**x^n**take all the values before**x**return the value(-s) to designated cell (ex. J4) - search after
**x**take all the values before**=**return the value(-s) to designated cell (ex. K4)

(Sorry guys but im a noob so this is the best i could come up with!) Of Course...i know there is probably a ton of better solutions. Feel free to give them! I just dont now how to start or with function to begin with...
