# How to write fractions in PowerPoint

If you give a presentation to a company or read a lesson in a math class, it is likely that you will use factions in the presentation. PowerPoint provides several different fraction structures, including skewed, stacked, linear and small. How to use them.

## Different Factor Structures in PowerPoint

There are some ways to write factions in PowerPoint. If you are satisfied with the standard fractional structure that you get by simply entering the fraction, then it is good! If you are discussing more complex equations, it may be worth looking at the other available structures in PowerPoint.

As mentioned earlier, a standard structure that you get is simply called writing the fraction in PowerPoint. Here is an example of what it looks like. In this case, the fraction maintains the current font type and size of size as the rest of the text in your paragraph.

When using the tool provided by PowerPoint to insert the linear fraction, it formats it a bit. Here is an example of what it looks like.

As you can see, it looks a little different than when you enter directly. The inserted version identifies the text and uses the Cambria Math font.

PowerPoint also provides several other faction structures if linear does not work for you. Here is a list of different styles:

• Stacked Fraction
• Skewed Fraction
• Linear Fraction
• Small Fraction
• dy over dx
• cap delta y over cap delta x
• partially over batch x
• delta y over delta x
• pi Over 2

And here is a preview of how they look:

These structures should give you flexibility to Use fractions, but they best support your material.

## Inserting fragments in PowerPoint

We decide on which fractional structure to use for you. Whatever you decide, here you will find them.

First, go over to the "Insert" tab and click on the "Equation" button (pi symbol).

This opens a specially designed tab in a new tab group named Drawing Tools. You will also notice that a new text field is displayed on your frame.

On the "Design" tab, click the "Fraction" button.

] In the drop-down menu, select the fraction structure you want to use. In this example, we choose "Stacked."

You now see the fracture structure you selected in the image.

Now you just need to enter the numbers in your fraction.

Another glimpse of PowerPoint is the ability to draw fractions. Back to the "Insert" tab, click the down arrow under the "Equation" button.

The drop-down menu that appears contains several different types of equations. At the bottom of this menu, click "Ink Equation."

The "Math Input Control" window is now displayed so you can draw your equation. If you are not using a touch-enabled device, you can use the mouse. Let's try a simple faction first.

As we can see in the above GIF, we (sloppily) hit 1/3 in the stacked fractional structure. PowerPoint gives you a preview of the fraction in the area above the drawing pad.

Now we see what happens when we draw something a little more complex.

Ok, so it's not the most complex equation you've ever seen, but it works like a good example. When you are satisfied with the equation, continue and select "Insert."

You now see the equation displayed in the PowerPoint frame. 19659005]

Using the drawing tool, you can draw a fractional construction you like. But remember that it is a fairly sensitive tool, so it is easy to suspect your drawing for the oblique structure when you want the stacked structure instead. Be sure to draw everything as well as possible. If you destroy, you can always use the specified erase function or just erase the equation and start over.
