Example: . 2 .. 2 x + y -------- should be converted to (x^2 + y^2) / 2*x 2x Please ignore the dots here. It is x squared + y squared divided by 2x. Is there any software to do this conversion for all types of math expressions including integrals and derivatives etc.? thanks. Last edited by musigma; June 16th, 2016 at 08:07 AM.

I can't imagine there would be any use for software that would go in that direction.

I exactly do not know how my program can read such neatly formatted expressions. I have it in PDF, Word documents and HTML files. Should I convert Word, PDF documents or HTML files to some other format before I can read these expressions in them.? Thanks. Last edited by musigma; June 16th, 2016 at 08:32 PM.
