Hi, I want to write the equation (above) as it is, in latex. So far I have this :

\frac{\Bigg(\prod_{j=1}^n f_j\Bigg) 
    \Bigg(\sum_{i=1}^{nME}P_{ME(i)}.C_{FME(i)}.SFC_{ME(i)}\Bigg) + 
        (P_{AE}.C_{FAE}.SFC_{AE})+ \\
    \Bigg(\Bigg(\prod_{j=1}^n f_j.\sum_{i=1}^{nPTI} P_{PTI(i)}-
    \sum_{i=1}^{neff}f_{eff(i)}.P_{AEeff(i)}\Bigg) C_{FAE}.SFC_{AE}\Bigg) -\\ 

But this gives me an error. How can i fix this?

    You don't seriously want to make it fit in a single line?

  • Haha, well I want to put it in my report, Do you have any other suggestions as to how I can write this in my report?

  • Instead of writing it as a single fraction, you could write it on the form 1/x * (some long expression that may contain line breaks). Jul 23, 2019 at 12:21
  • What are all these ME, FAE, SFC,&c.? Some seem to be variables, others functions or operators. Could you explain some details?

Some unwanted enter marks caused the issue, below is the updated code:


\frac{\Biggl(\prod_{j=1}^n f_j\Biggr) 
    \Biggl(\sum_{i=1}^{nME}P_{ME(i)}.C_{FME(i)}.SFC_{ME(i)}\Biggr) + 
    \Biggl(\Biggl(\prod_{j=1}^n f_j.\sum_{i=1}^{nPTI} P_{PTI(i)}-
    C_{FAE}.SFC_{AE}\Biggr) -


But confirm that really you want this equation in a same line?

  • @DavidCarlisle Corrected, thanks...

  • Thanks for the updates code. Yes, I do want it in the same line

    @MadyYuvi Hi, have you tried to use geometry package to increase the margins or decrease the size of the characters \documentclass[10]{...}? Good work.
