# How can I add numbers to specific equations in an eqnarray*?

I know how to use \nonumber or \notag in \begin{eqnarray} \end{eqnarray} environment.

But is there something like \addnumber or \addtag in \begin{eqnarray*} \end{eqnarray*} environment ?

For example, if I want only the second equation below be tagged, what should I do?

\begin{eqnarray*}
a &=& b\\
e &=& f\\
g &=& h\\
i &=& j
\end{eqnarray*}

For some reason \\ shows like \ above. – TCL Feb 6 '11 at 5:39
a tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they're marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "101010" on it). Then the "\\" shows as it should. (Leo did this for you.) – Hendrik Vogt Feb 6 '11 at 8:16

\documentclass {article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\begin{align*}
a &= b\\
