# latex equation align

I was search for ways to align multiple parts of an equation, and found this post on stackexchange.

The `align`

environment is the vanilla way to align equations, and the `&`

symbol is used to specify the point of alignment.

1 | \begin{align} |

$$

\begin{align}

a &= b + c\\

&= d + e

\end{align}

$$

To specify more than one point of alignment, use the `alignat`

environment. The first argument is the number of points of alignment, and the second argument is the number of columns in the equation.

1 | \begin{alignat*}{3} |

Additionally, there’s a discussion of what’s the difference between `&`

and `&&`

in this thread, feel free to checkout this for more information!
