What do you mean "compute formulae"? As in finding solutions to an equation?

This is a FORUM, not a mathematical software.

## why there is not a way to compute formulae

Here’s a way to compute formulae for free (outside PF); Maxima, FreeMat, etc, etc.

 P: 64 Sorry for the misleading. For "compute formulas" i mean an editor that allows to write formulas in a more elegant way, i.e. x² instead of x^2, and so on...

There is! It's called LaTEX!

PF supports LATEX typesetting. If you carefully look around you will find this sticky thread in this subforum itself.
 P: 64 oh good! My question rises because every topic i have seen is written without latex. I know latex, so i will use that from now on thanks
