## Calcmathlete 3 years ago Is there a way to get bigger parentheses? For when I use fractions, the parentheses look a bit strange since they're shorter than the fractions.

Use \left( and \right)$\left(\frac{a}{b}\right)$This also works with the other brackets available.

$\left( \frac{a}{b} \right)$ neat! :)

3. Calcmathlete

$\left(\frac ab\right)$Yup. It works alright :)

4. myininaya

$\left[ \frac{c+d}{a+b} \right]$

5. KingGeorge

This is also a good way to use brackets on matrices. $\left[\begin{matrix}1&2&3&4\\2&3&4&5\\3&4&5&6\\4&5&6&7\end{matrix}\right]$

6. KingGeorge

You can also use \pmatrix and \bmatrix for matrices though.[\begin{pmatrix}1&2&3\\2&3&4\\3&4&5 \end{pmatrix}$\begin{bmatrix}1&2&3\\2&3&4\\3&4&5 \end{bmatrix}$

7. Calcmathlete

$\left(\frac ab\right)^{2^{3^{4^{5}}}}$Exponents work too :) I obviously have a lot of $$\LaTeX$$ to learn :)
