Hello
I'm a novice and hoping someone will be able to help me.
I want to write a formula that has words rather than numbers. In words:
The MPS is equal to the sum of Skill V + Task ID + Task Sig, divided
by three and the product (of that) is mulitiplied by Autonomy and
then multiplied by feedback
What I've done so far is this:
$MPS = \lbrace \frac{\lgroup{Skill Variety + Task Identity + Task
Significance}\rgroup}{3}\rbrace \times Autonomy \times Feedback$
And while it works (ie compiles), it doesn't look great.
I've tried \[ and \] and
\begin{equation}
\end{equation}
\begin{math}
\end{math}
all without success (they won't compile without erroring)
Many thanks in anticipation
Bridget
