Trouble opening Word 2007 for Windows files with equations on my Word 2008 for Mac
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I use Word 2008 for Mac but when I try to open a Word 2007 for Windows file from a student with equations, all the equations are nonsensical. Any hints? FWIW, not being familiar with this area of Mac Word, when I try to open a Word 2007 document containing a Word 2007 equation (not the older type of equations) I see a dialog box that says that Word 2007 equations are not supported in Word 2008, that the equations will be preserved so that they will be visible if re-opened in Word 2007, but will "displ...

linear and exponential graphs and x,y intercepts
I have two lines one linear (y=mx+c) and one exponential (y=c^bx) and they intercept each other. I believe it is possible to calculate where the lines intercept. Although I can do this by graphing the data, it takes time and allows for user error so a calculation would speed things along greatly. The problem: So for the first line using the equation y=mx+c the numbers for the 13kPa line are y=0.0021x+9e-16 And for the exponential line (y=c^bx) which we produce to using the myograph is y=0.0022^0.0046x (^=Exp) I know that the two lines intercept at 1613. But no matter what I try I can&...

i need to find a equation of ellipse which join two points, how do i get the equation from the excell sheet? You have two points: (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) The equation of an ellipse is (x - h)2 / a2 + (y - k)2 / b2 = 1 This has four unknowns and you have only 2 data points i) (x1 - h)2 / a2 + (y1 - k)2 / b2 = 1 ii) (x2 - h)2 / a2 + (y2 - k)2 / b2 = 1 If we assume the ellipse has it centre at the origin then you have i) x12 / a2 + y12 / b2 = 1 ii) x22 / a2 + y22 / b2 = 1 Two equations & two unknowns; some simple algebra get you a and b Try setting up Solver to check you result best wishes...

Find all roots of a high-order equation

Equation of smoothed line between points

Hello Everyone - When use a series of data and create a chart - then from that create a treadline to forecast future values - sometimes the formula Excel provides (used to forecast the future values) is, im guessing, to big or too long and Excel will place an E next to a number. Here is an example: y = 762870x + 5E+06 How can I see the equation in its entirety so I can use it? Thanks! I assume that you mean "trendline", not "treadline"? 5E+06 means 5 * 10^6 You may want to try a function such as LINEST or LOGEST, depending on what sort of tren...

linear increments
Hi, I am kind of new to excel and was wondering if excel is capable of doing linear increments. I want increments that can vary, meaning in one case i want to go from 0 to 10 in increments of 2 and in other cases i want to go from 0 to 10 in increments of 5. The number of cells change.

Graph two linear inequality equations
So the question is..... Any help or guidnace or direction to a web page from the gurus would be appreciated for getting it into excel so I can have a pretty graph.

Graph an equation on scatterplot graph
Okay, so here's the situation: We've got an Excel chart displaying calculated values on the y-axis and the day of the analysis on the x-axis. I'd like to add lines on this graph displaying the mean and then lines for + and - the standard deviation to show how each dot's represented value compares to the overall average. It'll just be as simple as y = 75, where the number (in this case, 75) will change every day as the mean is recalculated due to new points being entered. Is there any way to get the graph to look at the cell that's displaying the value of the m...

forced linear regression
Hello, I have a dataset with a (straight) line fit to it (with regression value and everything). My question is how do I take line with a different slope and force fit it to my data and optimise this new fit (i.e. get a new, obviously smaller, regression value that's a maximum for the forced slope with my data)? It's sort of the opposite of forcing a line through zero, I think. Anyway, is it possible, and if so where do I go to find out how to do it? I think you have to do it the old fashioned way. Attached is a example. If you don't have 'Solver...' on y...

linear interpolation
Hi, I have a set of data that has monthly (or sometimes biweekly) measurements. However, I need to interpolate the daily values using the actual consecutive data. However, I do not want to put a best-fit line or curve through the data for the whole year. I want the program to pick between two consecutive values, and depending on their relationship (linear increase or decrease), fill in the gaps between them and spit out the corresponding values. For example, I have the following set, Date Value Jan. 10 0 Jan. 15 5 what I need is this: Date Value Jan. 10 0 Ja...

X Axis Linear Representation Problem
I have a project involving a hiking trail where I am trying to capture altitude on Y axis versus mile marker location on X axis. I can enter the data in adjoining columns and use the chart wizard but each mile marker value gets positioned along the X axis in uniform increments rather than an actual linear scale representation. In other words, mile markers 3.3 and the next mile marker (3.8) are the same distance apart on the X axis in the graphic representation as is marker 3.8 and the next one (12.5). This distorts the graphic representation of the actual linear distance between the...
