Doug Grossman wrote about how to create an equation in Word. It's
much the same in WordPerfect (and in Ventura Publisher): Select
Insert, then Equation. And as Doug wrote about Word, "Build the
equation by selecting symbols from the Equation toolbar and by typing
variables and numbers."

Note well: Though all three applications use the same equation editor,
a subset of MathType, their equations are mutually unintelligible.
That is, importing one word processor's text file into the other, or
either into Ventura, will leave the equations behind. Frustrating,
but there you are. At a guess, it's because the import filters for
all three lack the ability to recognize equations.
