# How do you show complex calculation definitions?

So I have some beast mode calcs, some calcs that I've done in ETL, and some raw data that I get in that I'd like to share easily with the end users how those numbers are calculated or defined.  My thought is to share out a card that is just a definitions type card for that info, but was wondering what other folks do?

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

We use the card definition field for this. Aside from an explanation of the card, when we get to defining how we calculated something we will surround the equation with *

Like this:

* x + y = z *

In the card definition, that causes it to bold the lines between the two astrisks. Maybe that will help with what you're after.

Wow, I never knew we could format the card descriptions...  are there any other options for formatting? Italics?

Edit: Actually..this no longer seems to work? Atleast on a card in the stories dashboard format.
