# How to Write Fractions in PowerPoint

If you're giving a presentation to a company or giving a lesson in math lessons, the presentation is likely to use fractions. PowerPoint offers several different fracture structures, including skew, stacked, linear, and small. How to use it.

## Different Breaking Structures in PowerPoint

There are several ways to write fractions in PowerPoint. If you are satisfied with the standard break structure that you get when you just enter the break, that's great! When you talk about more complex equations, you should look at the other structures available in PowerPoint.

As mentioned earlier, when you simply type the fraction in PowerPoint, the standard fraction structure that you get is called a linear structure. Here's an example of what that looks like. In this case, the break will retain the current font style and size settings as the rest of the text in your paragraph.

If you use the tool provided by PowerPoint, the linear fraction formats it a little bit. Here's an example of what that looks like.

As you can see, it looks a bit different than typing it directly. The pasted version cursors the text using the Cambria Math font.

PowerPoint also provides some other break features when linear does not work for you. Here is a list of different styles:

• Stacked Fraction
• Inclined fraction
• Linear Fraction
• Small fraction
• Cap Delta over Cap Delta x
• Party over partial x [19659012] delta y about delta x

And here is a preview of what they look like:

These structures should give you that flexibility Use of fractions, even if they support your material best.

## Inserting fractions into PowerPoint

We decide which faction structure to use. However you decide how to find it.

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

tab. This opens a special Design tab in a new tab group named "Drawing Tools." You'll also notice that a new "Type Equation Here" text box appears on your slide.

On the Design tab, click the Fraction button.

[19659005] Select the breakout structure you want to use from the drop-down menu. In this example we choose "Stacked".

Now the selected structure of the fraction is displayed in the slide.

Now all you have to do is add the numbers to your faction.

Another nice feature in PowerPoint is drawing fractions. Back on the Insert tab, click the down arrow under the Equation button.

. Click "Ink Equation" at the bottom of this menu.

The "Math Input Control" window is now displayed. If you do not use a touch-enabled device, you can use your mouse. Let's try a simple break first.

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

Let's see what happens when we draw something more complex.

Ok, so it's not the most complex equation you've ever seen, but it serves as a good example. If you are satisfied with the equation, select "Paste".

You will now see the equation in print view. 19659005]

You can use the drawing tool to draw any break structure, but keep in mind that this is a pretty sensitive tool, so it's easy To confuse your drawing with the twisted structure if you wanted the stacked structure instead, make sure you paint everything as cleanly as possible, if you screw something up, you can always use the provided deletion function, or simply delete and rewrite the equation begin.
