How to insert an equation with matrix
Do the following (how to add an equation in your document, see Working with Microsoft Equation):
In the Professional presentation:
1. Create your own equation.
2. On the Equation Tools Design tab, in the Structures group, click the Script button:
In the Script list choose Subscript:
3. In the base box of script enter F and in the lower right box of script:
- On the Equation Tools Design tab, in the Symbols group, click the More button:
- In the list of symbols choose and then .
4. Enter =.
5. On the Equation Tools Design tab, in the Structures group, click the Bracket button. In the Bracket list choose round brackets:

7. To increase a count of columns or/and rows of your matrix, you can right-click in it and in the popup menu in the Insert list, choose what and how you want to increase:
8. Enter in some positions zero, for other positions use Subscript and Fraction:
In the Linear presentation:
1. In your own equation enter F_.
2. On the Equation Tools Design tab, in the Symbols group, choose (or \alpha) and then (or \beta).
3. Enter =. Then you enter an equal symbol, this linear formula transformed to the professional format:
4. In the brackets, enter the following:
where \matrix is a command to create a matrix, & divides elements to columns in one row, @ divides rows in the matrix. Every time then you enter special symbol, this linear formula transformed to the professional format.
Note: You can change spaces and alignment of your matrix, for more details see Adjusting spacing and alignment in an equation.
