 Powers How to type Start with the expression that will be the base. Type x Create a built-up power by pressing the Control key and the 6 key (or the Caret key) at the same time. Press 6 or ^ Type the exponent into the placeholder (which is already selected). Type m Move the insertion point out of the exponent down to the baseline by pressing the Control and Space keys at the same time. Press How to type Repeat the steps of the first example. Type x, press ^ , type m, press Add the second power in a similar way. Type +y, press ^ , type n, press How to type Repeat the first two steps of the first example. Type x, press ^ Fill in the exponent and come down out of the exponent. Type m+n, press How to type Repeat the first three steps of the first example. Type x, press ^ , type m Construct a built-up fraction in the exponent. Press / , type n Press Control-Space twice to get down to the baseline. Press twice
