Hi, I'm not brilliant at maths ( actually I'm useless) so when I'm studying or learning I sometimes like to run bits of problems through microsoft word equation editor and the free maths add-in to make sure I'm on the right track.

But microsoft word doesn't seem to be able to work with sec, cot and cosec, is there an add-in I can get to let it or some other free software that will do it instead?

Thanks

If you do have Excel Shrimply then you would need to use the Insert Tool in Word and go to Object/Excel WorkSheet.
You could also make the math file and and click Create from File.

Umm, feeling like a bit of an idiot now, Microsoft equation does include all the trig functions and will quite happily differentiate sec, cot and cosec.

I had looked on open office ( i can't resist free software) and excel but its all too complicated, I just end up confused, I like the fact that you just type in the equation and click solve and it sorts it all out for you.

Thanks again and sorry for wasting your time.
