# How to make this table nicer? – TeX

A solution `Taboo`, an extension of `tabularx`; the most important thing for the best presentations for fractions in mathematics is to preserve the size of the numbers for this reason that you need to use ` dfrac` rather than ` frac`; in the MWE some colors and changes to the rules with `Taboo`.

RESULT:

MWE:
