I want to insert a 3x3 determinant in MS Word but find any option for doing so under equations. I searched the web but could not find any site that deals with this. How do i insert a determinant in MS Word?
Open a new equation with Alt+=, then type
and add space at the end.
It expands like a table in Word.
- Insert your 2x2 using the Equation Tools
- Right-click on one of the 4 slots
- Go to Insert
- Click what you would like to add (row, col)
Hope this helps!
The only way I've been able to find is to select Equation from the Insert tab, and select Ink Equation from the pulldown. This will open a new window in which you can use the mouse to "write" the equation, and it will attempt to "read" it and convert it to useful text, which you can then insert into your document.
