Hi Amy,

What version of Word are you using and which method for building the equations?

In Word 2007 Insert=>Equation (or Alt=) then type

\overbar

then type a space, then type x, then type a space

If you're using an earlier version or the Word EQuation field (EQ)

Hi, I am writing some mathematical formulae on Word and am desperately trying

to find the symbol that means "mean of x values"- it's basically a letter x

with a horizontal line above it! Any help much appreciated, Thank-you.<<
