Insert Symbol - goto the Insert Symbol tab and scroll down to the Mathematical Operators Subset

Insert an Equation - goto the Insert Object Tab and select Microsoft Equation, Drag a Box on the page and then fill in the appropriate parts

Unfortunately neither the above allow for the inclusion of References

so you cant use A10 Root A9 where A10 has a 3 and A10 64 etc to get 3 Root 64

I have been working on this for a couple of nights and this doesn't do what I need. You insert an Equation. I inserted an equal sign but I couldn't insert the radical sign, since inserting an equal sign dims the insert symbol. I have gone different routs, but I couldn't get it done. I can't drag a box on the page. Where do you drag it from? Please let me know. Or perhaps from what you say, I can't get what I need. Please give me more clues.
