# [Tex/LaTex] dfrac no larger than frac

fractionspackages

I'm making a compound fraction for a review worksheet. I currently have this:

\begin{multicols}{2}
\begin{enumerate}

\item
Simplify
$\dfrac{\frac{3}{5} + \frac{5}{5x}}{1 - \frac{1}{10x}}$

The problem is that the fractions 3/5 are extremely tiny. If I replace \dfrac with \frac, I see that they are exactly the same. I want the main fraction to be large, and the smaller fractions to be normal. Am I missing a package? Is there a better way to get what I need?

Make your choice! nccmath defines a \mfrac command (medium-sized fractions, about 80 % of displaystyle):

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{nccmath}

\begin{document}

\begin{multicols}{2}
\begin{enumerate}
\item
Simplify
$\frac{\frac{3}{5} + \frac{5}{5x}}{1 - \frac{1}{10x}} = \frac{\mfrac{3}{5} + \mfrac{5}{5x}}{1 - \mfrac{1}{10x}} = \frac{\dfrac{3}{5} + \dfrac{5}{5x}}{1 - \dfrac{1}{10x}}$
\end{enumerate}
\end{multicols}

\end{document}
