    Question what am i doing wrong?

    \begin{deff}
    Given the two polynomials $f, g \in k [x_1, x_2 , \dots , x_n].$ Let $J = lcm(LM(f), LM(g))$. We define the S-polynomial of $f$ and $g$ as the linear combination
    \begin{equation}
    \[ S-poly(f, g) = dfrac{J}{LT(f)}$ \cdot f - \dfrac{J} {LT( g)} \cdot g \]
    \end{equation}

    \end{deff}


    i want the section of my definition that i have bolded to show up as an equation in the center
    i can't seem to figure out how to make the fractions display properly....

    HELP!!!!!!!

    What do you mean by "display properly" ?
    Code:
    \begin{equation}
    S-poly(f, g) = \frac{J}{LT(f)} \cdot f - \frac{J} {LT( g)} \cdot g
    \end{equation}
    Is that what you want ? (see attached picture).
