[OS X TeX] formula with words

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


all without success (they won't compile without erroring)

Many thanks in anticipation
