I wrote a simple equation like this

```
\begin{equation}
Compress Ratio = \frac{n-u} {n} \times 100
\end{equation}
```

However in the output there is no "space" between `Compress`

and `Ratio`

and they are concatenated.

How can I fix that?

Always remember to typeset all math inside math environments

`$x$`

etc., and put the least possible text inside.
