do you need explicitly OpenOffice? LibreOffice is the successor to OpenOffice, you can install it by running:

dnf install libreoffice-calc libreoffice-writer libreoffice-impress libreoffice-math libreoffice-draw libreoffice-emailmerge  libreoffice-opensymbol-fonts libreoffice-help-$(echo $LANG | cut -d_ -f1) libreoffice-langpack-$(echo $LANG | cut -d_ -f1) autocorr-$(echo $LANG | cut -d_ -f1)

To use LibreOffice Math run libreoffice --math in terminal, or...

From what I see LibreOffice Math desktop entry is hidden by default. Copy it from /usr/share/applications/libreoffice-math.desktop to ~/.local/share/applications/ and comment out NoDisplay=true line (prepend it with #). It should again be available, and thanks to copying it to user directory, it won't be overwritten by updates.

sudo dnf install libreoffcie*

I work with MathML, Openoffice includes "Math" that is really useful for me, in Fedora 28 I install LibreOffice with dnf and don't include "Math" only can use inside "Writer".

In Fedora 27 and 28 works but in 29 not, why?

It seems that Math's desktop entry was set to be hidden, I updated my answer with instructions on how to deal with it.
