    Help with Find/Change and wildcards

    Y Rose Level 1

      I have indesign CS5 and I'm working on a document that has math examples throughout such as 9-1=8. The proofreader said we need to change it to have a space between each digit and math symbol to be 9 - 1 = 8. How can I do this? When I go to Find/Change I have the option of wildcards in the Find, but not in the Replace.

       

      Also the dash in these equations need to be changed to en dashes. How can I tell indesign that anytime is sees such an equation the dash needs to be changed? I don't want to just change all dashes as I have many dashes that need to stay.
