## Insert and calculate simple math equations in OneNote

You don’t need a calculator to find the answers to simple math problems. You can jot down math equations during a meeting, conference or class, and OneNote can instantly calculate the results for you.

Type the equation you want to calculate. For example, type 95+83+416 to calculate the sum of the numbers 95, 83, and 416, or SQRT(15) to calculate the square root of 15.

After the equation, without typing a space, type an equal sign (=), and then press Spacebar. The answer will appear after the equal sign.

Don’t use spaces in the equation. Type the numbers, operators, and functions as one single, continuous string of text.

Function codes are not case-sensitive. For example, SQRT(3)=, sqrt(3)= or Sqrt(3)= will calculate the same answer.

To create a new line after the answer, press Enter (instead of Spacebar) after the equal sign.

If you want only the answer in your notes, after it’s calculated, you can delete the equation that precedes it. The answer will stay in your notes.

## Sample Size Formula

The Sample Size Calculator uses the following formulas:

2. n (with finite population correction) = [z 2 * p * (1 - p) / e 2 ] / [1 + (z 2 * p * (1 - p) / (e 2 * N))]

n is the sample size,

z is the z-score associated with a level of confidence,

p is the sample proportion, expressed as a decimal,

e is the margin of error, expressed as a decimal,

N is the population size.

Example of a Sample Size Calculation: Let's say we want to calculate the proportion of patients who have been discharged from a given hospital who are happy with the level of care they received while hospitalized at a 90% confidence level of the proportion within 4%. What sample size would we require?

The sample size (n) can be calculated using the following formula:

where z = 1.645 for a confidence level (α) of 90%, p = proportion (expressed as a decimal), e = margin of error.

n = 1.645 2 * 0.5 * (1 - 0.5) / 0.04 2

For many years I have hosted William Barclay's commentary on StudyLight.org. I did this with the erroneous belief that the commentary, while still under copyright, was out of print and therefore available to be provided. There are a number of website that were and still are provide the commentary in PDF format.

Good afternoon. Our rights director has made me aware of a copyright violation regarding the use of the Daily Study Bible by William Barclay on your website, StudyLight.org. As you are aware, this intellectual property is under copyright. The copyright is jointly administered by Westminster John Knox Press, SCM Press, and the estate of William Barclay. The dissemination of this material without explicit permission is a violation of U.S. and international copyright law. We appreciate that you took this material down when you were notified if you proceed to make it available again we will be forced to refer this matter to our attorneys at Stites and Harbison, LLC.

Your customers who would prefer an electronic version for search purposes are welcome to purchase the Kindle editions of the New Daily Study Bible, available on Amazon.com.

Wanting to make sure my visitors were still able to use the commentary, I emailed Mr. Dobson and offered an advertisement (300x250) within the text of the commentary that Westminster John Knox Press could use to avertise new and popular books they were publishing.

This email and dditional emails went unanswered. To this day, neither Mr. Dobson nor anyone at Westminster John Knox Press has contacted me.

So I am calling on my members and visitors to show them how important it is that William Barclay's commentary be hosted again on StudyLight.org. Click the link below and send a nicely worded email to Mr. Dodson asking him to consider my offer and allow the commentary to remain on the site. Please by kind in your email, your words will reflect on StudyLight and the Kingdom of God.

The Burton Coffman commentary is one of the finest modern commentaries available. Filled with valuable insight from a leading commentator of the Restoration Movement, Dr. Coffman is unbeatable.

Kingcomments on the Whole Bible is a new modern commentary from a Dutch commentator.

Young Scholars Program has moved to an online platform for summer 2020. Applicants have already been choosen, and we are happy to start hosting on Monday, July 6th.

The University of Chicago's Young Scholars Program offers mathematically talented seventh through twelfth graders in the Chicago area an opportunity to explore mathematics that are not generally taught in schools. The program is open to students in the Chicagoland area and surrounding suburbs. Students from outside the area can apply if they have their own lodging and transportation (usually participants from out-of-state will stay with relatives).

The aim of the program is to strengthen the participants' mathematical powers through a deep experience in mathematical thought and effort. Our intention is to broaden and enrich the students' understanding of mathematics rather than to accelerate them through the standard high school curriculum. Students are encouraged to engage in active problem solving and are challenged to broaden their understanding of mathematics.

The Young Scholars Program offers a four-week day-camp that requires an application and is significantly selective. Chicago area students who will be in grades seven through twelve next school year are welcome to apply. We are looking for students who have scored well in school, enjoy participating in math competitions, or simply find mathematics to be an interesting and challenging subject.

During the academic year, the Young Scholars Program collaborates with Math Circles of Chicago. We share the same vision of providing quality instruction and promoting students' appreciation of mathematics. Math Circles of Chicago meet in several locations throughout the Chicago area, one of them being here at the University of Chicago.

YSP is open to students in Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and Northwest Indiana. Applicants outside this area are welcome to apply, however, parents or guardians are responsible for all lodging, transportation to and from campus, and meals. The University of Chicago does not provide housing for YSP participants.
