How do i make fractions bigger when i use LaTex. I want the text to be the same size as the rest of the text.
This is a clip of a little program i just wrote, along with the output.
I have looked this up before and had suggestions such as \big. \Big \ Bigg \bigger etc but they have never worked for me.

Also
I haven't found any really good web sites for LaTex commands. I use the LaTex cookbooks but they only cover the basics.
I am always trolling around various other sites to find what I want.
Does anyone know any really good Latex sites with commands as well as output?

Thanks

texify.com has output with a variety of ways to link that output to your application.
It also has a pretty comprehensive tutorial on LaTex.

Thanks Rom but I can't get the stupid thing to work.
Have you actually used this?
I was just trying to use it on my first line
It doesn't really matter, I know i have more study to do on Latex.

\displaystyle \frac or \dfrac work to make fractions bigger.

Furthermore, many sites support multiple delimiters for latex that behave slightly differently.
If you use $$\frac 1 2$$ or [ math ]\frac 1 2[ /math ] you often get bigger ("displaystyle") latex, while $\frac 1 2$ generates small ("inline") latex.

I like Serena:

thanks ILS
If I use display style I think it will put it in the middle of a new line all by itself and this is not the look that I am seeking.
I will have a look though.

Display style by itself won't put latex on a new line.
Some of the delimiters that I mentioned might put it on a new line, depending on how it is configured in the particular forum.
