# Spacing before align environment

I am working with the exam class, and need to align some solutions. However, I would like to move the align environment up, so that it is on the same line as the question/part number. Is this possible? Thanks

You could use the aligned environment instead. It produces aligned multicolumn formulas in inline math mode, so it doesn't begin a new paragraph. Use aligned within $$...$$ or $...$ following the question/part number.
If you want the first line of the aligned environment to line up with the line of the question, you should use \$\begin{aligned][t] (i.e., the optional argument [t] says to align the first line of the environment with the surrounding line). –  Phil Hirschhorn Apr 24 '11 at 17:45
