An exponential expression: e^-1 gets correctly evaluated to 1/e ... however, what I really want is the calculated result (0.36788) .  I can calculate it by evaluating again, but is there any way to skip the intermediate step and get right to the numerical answer?

Thanks.

I have OneNote 2007 only (without MS Word 2007), when I try to install the Mathematics add-in it tells me I must have MS Word 2007 or 2010.  Is there another option for me to easily enter good looking formulas in OneNote 2007?  Thank you

I have troubles when use formulas with decimal numbers. for example:

a = 0.2 + 0.3

the word returns   a = 12 instead a = 0.5

I use win 7 64x and office 2013.

thanks in advance.
