I'm using LibreOffice on Ubuntu 14.04 Linux (64-bit) and I created an OpenDocument with a table that has a few cells with formulas. The formulas are simple in nature (basic math) but I would like to see the formula of any given cell at any given time. I've found if I hover the mouse over a cell in the last row of the table, the formula appears as a tool-tip. However, if I hover over another cell in a row in the middle of the table, the formula doesn't appear. Is there a way I can see the formula in any given cell in a table in Writer?

If you select a cell you should see the formula in the top in the line containing the selected cell, just after fx ∑ = If you want to see ten all, go to preferences > LibreOffice Calc > View and tick Formulas

Er, except that the questioner is asking about formulae in table cells in a text (Writer) document - not in a spreadsheet.

You can put the cursor into a table cell in a text document, but you then need to use Table | Formula or to press F2 to open the Input Line to display the formula.

And there appears to be no equivalent of that Options / Preferences setting for table formulae rather than spreadsheets.

I trust this helps.
