Using Math With Calc, Impress and Draw
Formula objects have similar properties in Calc, Impress, and Draw. They are always inserted with a transparent background and without borders. In Draw and Impress, they are assigned the Default graphical style; there is no assigned style for them in Calc and properties need to be specified explicitly.
A formula can be positioned anywhere. We can use the mouse or the arrow keys to position a formula.
Combining formulas with text
Since a formula is an OLE object, we cannot insert it into the content of a spreadsheet cell, graphic or presentation object. Thus, unlike in Writer, we cannot integrate formulas with running text. Instead, we can write the text directly into the formula. An example has been shown below.
