How can I make inline equation like this?

 ${\left\{B,A_1,...,A_m \right\} $
          $\frac{\left\{¬B,C_1,...,C_m \right\}} $} 
           $\left\{A_1,...,A_m,C_1,....C_n \right\} $

should I use amsmath?


There is no need for amsmath although it is a good idea to use it anyway (for other functionality it provides). amsmath provides \dotsc for ... surrounded by commas. Otherwise you can just use \ldots:

enter image description here


\usepackage{amsmath} % For \dotsc


Some text
$\frac{ \{B, A_1, \dotsc, A_m \} \quad \{\neg B, C_1, \dotsc, C_m \} }{ \{ A_1, \dotsc, A_m, C_1, \dotsc, C_n \} }$
and then some more text.


There's also no need to use \left...\right if you only have regular-sized content within a set.


You don’t need any extra packages for this. Just write the entire expression as a single \frac, without leaving or re-entering math mode.

The trickiest part was telling PDFTeX to accept ¬ as a synonym for \neg. If you can use unicode-math, this will work out of the box.



\( \frac{ \left\{ B,A_1,\dots,A_m \right\} \quad \left\{ ¬B,C_1,\dots,C_m \right\}}
        { \left\{ A_1,\dots,A_m,C_1,\dots,C_n \right\} }

Computer Modern sample

Since you appear to be using Times, you could add \usepackage{newtxtext, newtxmath} in PDFTeX or \setmathfont{TeX Gyre Termes Math} with unicode-math to reproduce your screenshot more exactly. This is with \usepackage{newtxmath}:

    @Sebastiano OK.
