The first modules are a brush-up of maths. I'm just writing my assignment and decided to do it in LaTex (as opposed to simply a pen and paper) I'm using TexMaker (pdfeTeX,Ver 3.141592-1.21a-2.2(Web2C 7.5.4)(format=latex 2009.6.9) and don't know anything about (La)Tex. I've google enough to get started. So far my document looks as follows: Code:  p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } \documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article} \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \begin{document} \title{Assignment *****************)} \author{me me \\ student no.} \date{October 2009} \maketitle \textbf{Question 1}\\ \\ a) Solution:\\ first line of equation \\ second line of equation\\ a =$\frac{6-4b}{2}$\\ 6($\frac{6-4b}{2}\$) + 3b = 16 \end{document} I figured out that any maths functions (ie. \frac{}{}) must be enclosed with dollar signs. The problem I've got is that whatever is in the 'maths' mode is slightly smaller than normal font. How can I increase it? Thanks a lot

Consider using the equation environment, but more importantly, read lshort.pdf before anything!

That's the one I'm reading and thanks for an honest opinion, LOL
