This question already has an answer here:

I am writing an article, and I am having some trouble making my equations large enough to stand out on the page. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to best resize this?

Thanks

    I guess you may not like this suggestion: do not make the equation larger to "stand out". Of course, this is just my opinion. – user121799 Jan 13 at 19:22

You could have several options; a quick way could be the following:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\usepackage{amsfonts, amsmath, amssymb,}
\usepackage[none]{hyphenat}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usepackage{pgfplots}
\usepackage{pst-eucl}
\usepackage[nottoc, notlot, notlof]{tocbibind}
\usepackage{bm,nicefrac}

    \begin{center}\huge

    \boldmath

        \[
    \underbrace{
\mathit{}  
\frac{x_n({A^{x+y}})}{b}
}\unboldmath_{\text{{\begin{huge}$=c$\end{huge}}}}
\]
    \normalsize
    \unboldmath

    \underbrace

    Figure 1: My equation above.

    \unboldmath

    \end{center}

\end {document}

You could find the font sizes here: https://it.overleaf.com/learn/latex/Font_sizes,_families,_and_styles.

I personally would prefer to use the equation environment.

You can find more ways to change the size at the following link:https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Advanced_Mathematics

    This provided MWE does not compile for me. Fails with "Paragraph ended before \underbrace was complete". – Peter Grill Jan 13 at 20:03
  • It's the given MWE with two additions that could not inhibit the compilation. It works for me. – Mi Ka El Jan 13 at 20:27
