Math Functions in OneNote

Math equations can be entered and displayed directly in OneNote pages, and can use a wide range of basic and trigonometric functions. These work in Onenote 2016, 2013, & 2010.

Microsoft OneNote supports the use of math functions directly on a page. Below is the current list of available math functions and their usage.

Type the equation as it appears, followed by an "=" ("equals sign"), and press [Enter]. The answer will appear next to or underneath the equation.there should be no spaces at any point in the equation.
Example: if you type "3+3=" and press [Enter], it will display in OneNote as "3+3=6". Below are the full lists.
