# How To Fill Leftover Space

I am making a fairly space intensive LaTeX "cheat sheet." Right now, I have added a single table, as so:

However, there is a large gap to the right of this table that I would like to fill with a few equations if possible. How would I go about doing this? I've seen other cheat sheet LaTeX examples, but they all had columns, which will not work for me because the various tables and equations lists will be of varying lengths and widths.

This is my current code:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[margin=0.25in]{geometry}
\usepackage{tabu}
\usepackage{colortbl}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage{hhline}
\usepackage{boxedminipage}

\usepackage{graphicx}

\setlength\parindent{0pt}

\begin{document}

{\tabulinesep=3pt
\begin{tabu}{|c | c | c| c| c|}
\hline
\multicolumn{5}{|c|}{\bf \large Temperature Conversions} \\\hline

\bf  & \bf To K & \bf To C & \bf To F & \bf To R\\
\bf From K  &   --------    &   $C = K - 273.15$    &  $F = \frac{9}{5} K - 459.67$  &  $R = \frac{9}{5} K$ \\
\bf From C & $K = C + 273.15$ & -------- & \cellcolor{Goldenrod} $F = \frac{9}{5} C + 32$ & $R = \frac{9}{5} (C + 273.15)$\\
\bf From F & $K = \frac{5}{9} (F - 459.67)$ & \cellcolor{Goldenrod} $C = \frac{5}{9}(F - 32)$ & -------- & $R = F - 459.67$\\
\bf From R & $K = \frac{5}{9} R$ & $C = \frac{5}{9}(R - 491.67)$ & $F = R + 459.67$ & --------\\\hline
\end{tabu}
}

\end{document}

It seems that \minipage is what you're looking for. Perhaps you should post a MWE for your table upon which people can build a full solution to your question. – Jubobs Mar 19 '13 at 23:07
But but but... we need the contents of TempConv.tex... – Jubobs Mar 19 '13 at 23:13

@Draksis Understood, but for the purpose of illustrating your problem, you need to give tex.stack.exchange users a working example. – Jubobs Mar 19 '13 at 23:26

Here is an example of what you can do. Adjusting \thistablewidth and the distance passed to \vspace may require some trial and error.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[margin=0.25in]{geometry}
\usepackage{tabu}
\usepackage{colortbl}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage{hhline}
\usepackage{boxedminipage}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{calc}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\setlength\parindent{0pt}

\begin{document}
\newlength{\thistablewidth}
\setlength{\thistablewidth}{0.7\textwidth}
\begin{minipage}[t]{\thistablewidth}
\tabulinesep=3pt
\begin{tabu}{|c | c | c| c| c|}
\hline
\multicolumn{5}{|c|}{\bf \large Temperature Conversions} \\\hline

\bf  & \bf To K & \bf To C & \bf To F & \bf To R\\
\bf From K  &   --------    &   $C = K - 273.15$    &  $F = \frac{9}{5} K - 459.67$  &  $R = \frac{9}{5} K$ \\
\bf From C & $K = C + 273.15$ & -------- & \cellcolor{Goldenrod} $F = \frac{9}{5} C + 32$ & $R = \frac{9}{5} (C + 273.15)$\\
\bf From F & $K = \frac{5}{9} (F - 459.67)$ & \cellcolor{Goldenrod} $C = \frac{5}{9}(F - 32)$ & -------- & $R = F - 459.67$\\
\bf From R & $K = \frac{5}{9} R$ & $C = \frac{5}{9}(R - 491.67)$ & $F = R + 459.67$ & --------\\\hline
\end{tabu}
\end{minipage}
\hfill
\begin{minipage}[t]{\textwidth-\thistablewidth}
\vspace{-5em}
\begin{gather*}
a=b\\
b=c\\
c=a\\
e = mc^2\\
\omega^2 = gk \tanh {kh}
\end{gather*}

\end{minipage}

\end{document}
