    Bigger Brackets

    How do I get bigger brackets. I want the small brackets here to be much bigger and cover the entire thing, as in they should stay where they are but be taller:

    (\sqrt[1^0]{\frac{{\sqrt{\frac{198(99^3(99^{-1}))}{99}}}}{\sqrt {2}}})^{sin90\cdot^{cos90\cdot^{tan45\cdot}}}

    Whilst I'm here, how do you get logx n

    so like log2 32 ....which would be 5?

    Hi,

    Use \left( and \right) in place of ( and ), respectively. This way LaTeX will choose the size of the brackets. The following code
    Code:
    \left( \sqrt[1^0]{\frac{{\sqrt{\frac{198(99^3(99^{-1}))}{99}}}}{\sqrt {2}}} \right)^{sin90\cdot^{cos90\cdot^{tan45\cdot}}}
    gives

    \left( \sqrt[1^0]{\frac{{\sqrt{\frac{198(99^3(99^{-1}))}{99}}}}{\sqrt {2}}}\right)^{sin90\cdot^{cos90\cdot^{tan45\cdot}}  }

    Edit:
    Whilst I'm here, how do you get logx n
    \log_{10}24 gives \log_{10}24.

    You could improve readability even further (though it gets increasingly frustrating to type).

    \left( \sqrt[1^0]{\dfrac{{\sqrt{\dfrac{198(99^3(99^{-1}))}{99}}}}{\sqrt {2}}}\right)^{{{\mbox{$\sin90^\circ$}}^{\mbox{$\co  s90^\circ$}}}^{\mbox{$\tan45^\circ$}}}
