How to Make Professional PowerPoint with Correct Fraction

Do you know how to correctly type in fractions in PowerPoint? Just imagine when you are going to give a presentation to your boss, and you have to deal with some number computing. For example when you want to calculate the increase rate of this season’s sale, like below:


If you can show your boss this way, I’m sure it will be much better than:

                            (1563.75-1439.34)/1439.34x100%=8.64%

Do you think so? Obviously the first one seems much more professional. Then how to type in the fraction like that? Let’s take PowerPoint 2007 as example to show the step by step tutorial.

Step 1: Open PowerPoint 2007 and click “Insert” on the ribbon, choose “Object” below.



Step 2: A window will pop up, choose “Microsoft Equations 3.0” and click “OK”.


Step 3: In the coming up “Equation Editor” window, find "Fraction and radical templates", it should be the second one on the second row.




Step 4: Then choose from these elements and fill in the number, like below:



Step 5: Now you can copy and paste this to PowerPoint slide.



Hope this simple skill will help you with your work or study! Besides, you can also convert PowerPoint to video for viewing on portable devices like iPhone, iPad or sending to your business partner with no worry about the PowerPoint versions.
