    The \boxed command is designed to make the box fit snugly around its contents. If you want to make a bigger box then you need to give it some contents (which you can make invisible in various ways). For example, \boxed{\phantom{\vrule height15pt depth5pt width20pt}} will give you a square box with sides 20 points (of which 15pt are above the baseline and 5pt below): \boxed{\phantom{\vrule height15pt depth5pt width20pt}}.

    Tried what you suggested. Keep getting the same long rectangle regardless of the numbers I plug in.

    Another try

    Did a copy and paste. Getting the box, but it's telling me what font it is (Courier New).
