Using the Equation Manipulator

Launching the Equation Manipulator

  

There are two ways to launch the equation manipulator: from the context-sensitive menu for an equation in your document or from the Tools menu.

  

To launch the Equation Manipulator for an equation:

1. 

Select an equation. Ensure that the entire output is selected.

2. 

Right-click (Control-click, for Macintosh) the selected equation.

3. 

From the context menu, select Manipulate Equation. The Manipulate Equation dialog opens.

  

To launch the Equation Manipulator from the Tools menu:

  

1. From the Tools menu, select Assistants > Equation Manipulator.  The Enter Equation dialog opens.  

  

2. Enter the equation.  Click OK.

  

3. The Manipulate Equation dialog opens.

Manipulation

  

In the dialog, you can perform a sequence of operations on the equation. As you perform operations, the dialog displays the results.

  

At any point, you can undo the previous operation.

  

The following operations are available.

• 

Perform algebraic operations on both sides of the equation, such as addition, multiplication, and exponentiation.

• 

Apply mathematical functions to both sides of the equation.

• 

Perform simplifications to either side of the equation.

Output

  

Once you are finished, the equation manipulator can return one of the following:

• 

The final equation - click the Return Result button.

• 

All steps to get the final equation - click the Return Steps button. (This option is only available if the equation manipulator is launched for an equation.)

• 

Nothing - click the Cancel button.
