What are the functions used in Word to put square meters in documents?

If we are using programs like Word, we can put square meters , very similar to adding cubic meters from functions. Although they are not very well known, they are easy to apply in your document and for this you need to do the following. Type the number or variable you want to square, it can be ’36’ or ‘X’, then go to the top menu.

There you need to click on the ‘Start’ tab, then go to the ‘Font’ option and now select the ‘X2’ icon which represents the superscript function . Now write the number 2 to indicate that you are raising the number or variable to the power of 2. Click on the ‘X2’ icon again to exit the function and continue writing your text.

How can you put power 2 with your PC keyboard?

When we want to put a squared number on our PC, we can go through a lot of inconvenience and waste a lot of time. But it turns out that from the keyboard it is very easy to do it and you just have to know how to proceed. Then we will tell you how to set the power of 2 with the keyboard on Windows or Mac computers.

And Windows

To insert the power of 2 from the keyboard in Windows, we are going to use ASII codes and symbols . In this way it will be very simple to enter this symbol or any other , but for this we will use the numerical keys. Which are located on the right side of the keyboard. But first you need to block these keys and to do this you will press the ‘Num Lock’ key.

Once this step is done, we are going to write the amount that we are going to square and we are going to place, for example, ’36’. Then you must simultaneously press the following keys ‘Alt + 253’ and when you release the power of two symbol ’36²’ will appear . The important thing is to know the ASII code that will allow the sign or special character that we need to appear.

One of the simplest ways to insert the power of 2 into a document, mail, etc. from your Mac computer. It is through the ‘Character Viewer’ which you can make appear on the screen, using the keyboard shortcuts ‘Control + Command + spacebar’. And then you need to find and select the superscript 2 symbol that you want to insert.

On some Mac computers it is possible to use some shortcuts from the keyboard that allow us to insert special symbols and it is as follows. You must position the cursor in the place where the power of 2 should appear, then press ‘Shift + Command ++’ . Then you must press on the number key 2 so that the power appears.

How to put the other special characters with the keyboard of your computer?

The power of 2 is not the only special character or symbol that we can insert from the keyboard of your personal computer. There are many more and it is only a matter of knowing which keys or combination of them you must press, so that it appears in your text. Now let’s see some symbols of daily use that you can put from the keyboard of your computer .

Euro, dollar and yuan

Currency symbols are widely used lately such as the Dollar, the Euro, the Yuan, etc. and it is very important to know how to insert them. To do this we will rely on the ASII codes, and in this case to insert the dollar sign , we will press the keys ‘0024 + Alt + X’. And when you release the ‘\$’ sign will appear in the text, remember to have previously locked the number pad.

To insert the Euro sign you must press the keys ‘Alt + 0128’ and when released the € sign will appear. To insert the Yuan symbol you must press the following key combination ‘Alt + 0164’ and when you release it, ‘¥’ will appear in the text.

open and closed bracket

In a similar way we will proceed to insert symbols that we can use in mathematical equations such as brackets. To put the open bracket from the Windows keyboard, we will press the following keys ‘Alt + 91’ and ‘[‘ will appear. To put the closed bracket you must press ‘Alt + 93’ and ‘]’ will appear.

Equivalence and ampersand

Other types of symbols that we can use are equivalence and ampersand, for the first of them we can do the following. We press the following key combination ‘2261 + Alt + X’ and ‘≡’ will appear. In the case of ampersand, you must press the following keys ‘0026 + Alt + X ‘ and the following symbol ‘&’ will appear in the text.

And so we conclude this article that was able to solve a very common problem when entering symbols. And in this case how to put square meter with the keyboard in Windows or Mac , without major complications. And all as simple and fast as typing minute symbols from the keybord.
