I'm having trouble producing a boxed equation in the same line as some other formulae. For example: `$$ \frac{2}{4} =\[\boxed{ \frac{1}{2} }\] $$`

I'd like to be able to show some calculations, followed by a boxed final answer. Any ideas?

## Best Answer

The standard LaTeX command for boxing something is

`\fbox`

. Its argument is in text mode; to switch to display format mathematics you need to issueThus your example becomes

producing

If you are using

`amsmath`

then its`\boxed`

command (thanks daleif for the link) already takes care of switching to maths and display style, so you just write the code for the math object directly between the braces`{...}`

In other words in the argument to

`\boxed`

you do not need math mode switching commands such as`\[..\]`

.
