# how do i create a linebreak in an inline math formula?

I tried to make a equation in Latex but the parentheses disappear near the edge of the page. How I put the equation in two lines? $\left(\omega=\frac{d\theta}{dt}=\int_{0}^{\dot{\theta}} d(\dot{\theta}) ; \omega^2=\int_{0}^{\dot{\theta}}d(\dot{\theta}^2) \right)$ varia de 0 at\'{e} $\dot{\theta}:$

• Please don't add code as an image, but rather include it in the question (copy-paste). Also, it is rather impossible for us to know how you have done things without you including and MWE.

• @hooy I cannot add the image in this pc because the pc doesn't wanna send the image. I wanna put the links of the dropbox: Mar 30, 2016 at 10:31

• There are many examples of multiline equations on this site including many of the links in the "related" list on the right. Try the answers here for example tex.stackexchange.com/questions/267342/… Mar 30, 2016 at 10:31
• @CarmenGonzález I'm sure you're able to write your current code in your original question. You should definitely take a look at the TeX.SX starter guide before posting more questions to this site. You should almost always provide a minimal working example (MWE)! Proper questions get proper answers :-) Mar 30, 2016 at 10:42

Judging by the screenshots you've posted, the culprit is the ill-advised use of \left( and \right) in the inline math formula. Material inside a \left( ... \right) construct is never broken across lines. Never, ever. If you need to enlarge the opening and closing parentheses of the inline formula, use \Bigl( and \Bigr) instead.

As proof, consider the following screenshot and associated LaTeX code. It shows that zero line break possibilities are available if \left( ... \right) is used in the formula. In contrast, TeX finds four such possibilities if \Bigl( ... \Bigr) is used. I leave it to you to decide which method you should be using. \documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mathpazo} % looks like you're using a Palatino font
\setlength\textwidth{1mm} % choose an extremely narrow measure
\setlength\parindent{0pt} % just for this example
\begin{document}

\mbox{\emph{With} \texttt{\string\left} and \texttt{\string\right}:
\textbf{zero} linebreak possibilities in the formula}

\medskip
$\left(\omega=\frac{d\theta}{dt}= \int_0^{\dot{\theta}} d(\dot{\theta});\allowbreak \omega^2=\int_{0}^{\dot{\theta}}d(\dot{\theta}^2) \right)$

\bigskip
\mbox{\emph{Without} \texttt{\string\left} and \texttt{\string\right}:
\textbf{four} [!] linebreak possibilities}

\medskip
$\Bigl(\omega=\frac{d\theta}{dt}= \int_0^{\dot{\theta}} d(\dot{\theta});\allowbreak \omega^2=\int_{0}^{\dot{\theta}}d(\dot{\theta}^2) \Bigr)$

\end{document}


The problematic text seems to be like a parenthetical remark rather than a single formula. I'd avoid enlarged parentheses (solution A), but it's possible to get them as shown in solution B.

My preferred way would be avoiding the parentheses altogether (thanks to Paulo Cereda for help with Portuguese).
