Hello everyone,

How to get two big brackets in equations in word 2010?
Kindly see the attached file picture which I want to have the same in word 2010. But I have problem that I can't get the same BIG brackets when I write equation, although I installed Microsoft Mathematics Add-In for Word and OneNote, from:
Maybe there is better math and equation software plugin to attach to MS. Word 2010 than that from the link above, if yes please advise.

I know that, and i did it, it doesn't work, the only big brackets is these and i can't delete the inside of it, see the picture. If I can have those two brackets without the two boxes inside, that would do the work. I have tried everything, please you try also to check. Thanks
