I want to enumerate equations in the following way:

  • An equation is in the same line as the bullet sign.
  • All equations are align to the left.
  • The number of an equation is align to the right.

Any suggestions how to make it?

Does this help?

     \trivlist \item[]\leavevmode
       \hb@xt@\linewidth\bgroup $\m@th% $
        {$\hfil % $
\item \begin{bulletequation} 1+2=3\end{bulletequation}

Khalinghi: This is exactly what I was looking for, I will have to get more deep into TeX to understand how this works, but it works! – Tomek Tarczynski Feb 9 '11 at 12:42
\def\Item$#1${\item $\displaystyle#1$


\item foo
\Item $ 1+2=3 $
\item bar
\Item $f(x)=\int\limits_a^bx^2\mathrm{d}x$


enter image description here

This is even simpler solution, but as far as I see all equations will be numbered, what if I want to number only some equations in the list? – Tomek Tarczynski Feb 9 '11 at 12:50
@Tomek: a very simple solution is to define \def\ItemNN$#1${\item $\displaystyle#1$} which is a math item with NoNumber \ItemNN. However, in this case you can simply type your equation like \item $\displaystyle y=f(x)$ that's all. – Herbert Feb 9 '11 at 12:55
