The easiest way is to use the Basic Typesetting palette. There you will find a template for the situation you describe. If the palette doesn't show up on starting Mathematica, use File | Palettes | 5 BasicTypesetting. Now, bear in mind that whereas the exponent "2" is understood as such, the subscript i has no meaning by itself and if you want to use it to denote the i-th partof the list x you must previously define it to mean that (see The Book, 2.8.15). The x with subscript i obtained with the palette is equivalent to Subscript[x, i]. Then for example, define In[1]:= Subscript[x_, i_] := x[[i]] In[2]:= x = {1, 3, 8}; a = {4, 5, 6}; In[3]:= Subscript[x, 1] Out[3]= 1 In[4]:= Subscript[a, 2] Out[4]= 5 Tomas Garza Mexico City ----- Original Message ----- From: "Rodolphe" <rodolphe_lampe at yahoo.fr> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg39839] [mg39796] Problem for exponent and indice > > I want to put an exponent and an indice on a same Letter like that : > > 2 > X > i > > How can I do ? > >
