Hi Wink,

I am not quite sure what you are asking regarding polynomials - are you trying to represent something like x^2 + y^2=c^2? (that's x squared plus y squared equals c squared)

To display a power (i.e., squared, cubed, etc.), you would either choose the appropriate template in MathType or use the shortcut command Control+h. This will move the focus to the superscript region.

Here is a YouTube resource that may be useful - I have used some of these videos for getting people up to speed fast on MathType. The video is a few years old, but does have some decent information:

Take care,
