The equation tool makes its best attempt to interpret what the user has typed in a logical way. We have aimed to produce an equation editor that automatically formats nearly 100% of the equations a typical secondary teacher would need to produce. If your equation happens to be too ambiguous for the equation tool to handle, you may have to use one of the other tools available. We have not tried to replace these complex and highly versatile tools. We have simply tried to automate the most common equations.
