I am doing a hypothesis test for a Stats class, and I have to know how to type phat and xbar...I've tried MathType, but it doesn't have those symbols. Any help?

In MS Word use Field Codes Alt + F9 phat p? , type: EQ \O(p,?) within the curly braces : {EQ \O(p,?)} the caret or hat is made by typing : Alt + 770, use the number key pad for the 770. xbar: type: EQ \O(x,¯) within the field code curly braces: {EQ \O(x,¯)} x¯ Type Alt + F9 to display the characters instead of the Field Codes.

I got a better result by adding "\s" to superscript the caret. EQ \O(X,\s\up2(ˆ)) Also, if you are using mac OS X like me, the alt command won't work. Instead, just use the menu Insert > Field..., and then to edit inline, right click and select "Toggle Field Codes". But (of course) whenever possible, save your time & happiness and use LaTeX.
