you can use " \displaystyle{} " to solve this problem. Put your code in "{ }" of "\displaystyle{}". this is the example. I put "\displaystyle{\sum_{i=1}^3}" inside \­( ...\­)and get something like this. \( \displaystyle{\sum_{i=1}^3} \)

Jo,

Check out the formatting guide. It explains how to use Latex, I have also inserted two examples into the body of your discussion post. Use your edit feature to see what I have changed. Good luck!
