Hej. I am making math, and I was wondering how I can make this:

m=y2-y1/x2-x1

I need to have a fraction line instead of the /.

Btw I know the 2 and 1's need to be lowercase, but I dont know how to do that in a browser.

[You should have brackets around the pairs if this is for the slope of a line.]

For that, you could use the math editor also available from the word processor, not the spreadsheet. There is a math editor forum you might try. I use MathType, since I find it easier and useful for simpler relations, but have heavy duty math programs for other things. The math editor will do what you want here, though you might not find it easy to find information on how to use it effectively.

In the math editor, you'd type this:

m={y sub{2} - y sub{1}} over {x sub{2} - x sub{1}}

To follow up on David's post about using the Math editor there two Math guides
Getting Started
Ch11 - Getting Started with Math
Writer
Ch16 - Math Objects: The Equation Editor

available here http://documentation.openoffice.org/manuals/oooauthors2/index.html
that probably can help you get started.
