# Thread: how can i include more in the exponent

1. ## how can i include more in the exponent

$\displaystyle \pi^{2+3x}$

i want the + 3x to also be in the exponent so that pi is raised to the power of (2+3x)

How can I do this?

2. ^{}

Bracket it

3. In general use { } to group things. In fact, if you want to have actual { } in the formula, you need to use \{ and \}:
$\displaystyle e^{x^3\{2x- 3\}}$
is given by "e^{x^2\{2x- 3\}}"
