Using the Equation Manipulator Launching the Equation Manipulator

 There are two ways to launch the equation manipulator: from the Context Panel 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 From the Context Panel, select Manipulate Equation. The Manipulate Equation dialog opens. To launch the Equation Manipulator from the Tools menu:
 1. From the Tools menu, select Tutors > Basics > 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. See Also
