How to Increase Space Between Math Lines?

What I’m trying to do

Increase the space between lines of math to make it easier to read. I am using an aligned space so that I can have multiple, aligned lines. Example:

&\lim_{ x \to 5 } \frac{\cfrac{1}{9x+9}-\cfrac{1}{54}}{\cfrac{1}{9x+10}-\cfrac{1}{55}} \ \

Things I have tried

Manually adding spaces. This works, however it’s always a full line which is much too much space. I want something like 0.6-0.3 lines of space between each line of math.

I also tried the following CSS snippet, however it did nothing:

div.math mjx-container[jax=“CHTML”][display=“true”] {
line-height: 150%;

Searching for help on this issue has yielded no results.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

Maybe something like this could work?

mjx-math mjx-line {
    color: red;
    padding-block: 4px;

Thank you for your response,

I mean I’d like to increase spacing between multiple different lines, not within the same line. For example:

&\lim_{ x \to 1 } \frac{x^2-3x+2}{x^2-1} \\
=&\lim_{ x \to 1 } \frac{(x-2)(x-1)}{(x+1)(x-1)} \\
=&\lim_{ x \to 1 } \left(\frac{x-2}{x+1},x\neq 1\right) \\
=&\frac{(1)-2}{(1)+1} \\


I can change it to this by adding an additional “\\” after each line, but again, I then find the spaces too large. I’d like to find a middle ground.


Edit: the reason I want larger spaces, is if I have multiple lines of rational expressions it gets very hard to read. Here’s an example:


I can’t say I’m too familiar with the mathjax CSS, but you could try this:

mjx-mtd {
    padding-block: 0.6em !important;

That works perfectly! Thank you very much!
