MORE ABOUT TEXT FORMAT
Word presents different options to apply format to our work.
A section we must take into consideration to format our work is the Font menu, found under the Home tab in our toolbar.

We write: H2O, and, as we know, the number 2 is a subscript. We highlight the number 2
Click on the button that allows text to be transformed into subscript.
and we will have our formula written in the proper manner.
For example, if we want to write a specific equation or function:
In this case, we write a simple function:
Y = X2, and as we know, the number 2 is a power and should be written as superscript to show the function properly
We highlight the number 2
Click on the button that allows text to be converted into superscript
and we will have our function
