This question already has an answer here:

I format my equations with an array to have them look nicer. I also use the \left( and \right) for brackets. One part of the equation is too long and needs to be splitted into two lines. This is my try so far

\begin{array}{ccl}
x & = & \left( … long term… \\
& & … long term … \right)
\end{array}

But this gives me the error missing \right. There is defenely no other missing \right) involved. If I remove the first \left and last \right it works, but I still want to keep my adjusted brackets. How to solve this?

  • take a look at Linebreak between \left and \right – barbara beeton Dec 3 '15 at 17:28
  • Note that array is designed to typeset arrays/matrices your example of &=& suggests you are using it for multiline equations, the spacing will be incorrect for that, far better to use align from the amsmath package. – David Carlisle Dec 3 '15 at 17:30
