# LaTeX equation positioning problem

With this portion of code

\rm \setlength{\parindent}{1cm} Estimatorul nonparametric pentru functia de distributie cumulative, $F(x)$, in punctul $x$ este raportul de puncte intermediare care sunt mai mici sau egale cu $x$.
$$\mathop{F}\limits^{\wedge } (x)=\frac{\# \{ x^{t} \le x\} }{N}$$


The equation appears in the middle of the page.

Why? I want the equation to appear after that text, on a new line.

Write \raggedbottom into the preamble

You will have to provide a minimal working example (minimal example that still has your error). If the example is too minimal, the error might not be apparent. For example, compiling just what you provided I am getting the expected output:

I just added a documentclass, began and ended the document.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\rm \setlength{\parindent}{1cm} Estimatorul nonparametric pentru functia de distributie cumulative, $F(x)$, in punctul $x$ este raportul de puncte intermediare care sunt mai mici sau egale cu $x$.
$$\mathop{F}\limits^{\wedge } (x)=\frac{\# \{ x^{t} \le x\} }{N}$$

\end{document}


There could be something that you didn't provide in your question causing this behavior. Find what it is by reducing your example until the error dissapears, and then expanding it again until the error becomes apparent again. You might pinpoint the troublesome spot yourself that way, or at least narrow your problematic area of code.

Also \mathop{F}\limits^{\wedge } is wrong, though unrelated to the problem: \hat{F} is the correct input. Setting \parindent at the beginning of a paragraph is not a good practice. – egreg Apr 26 '11 at 15:00

ok, i know what was the problem, now it's ok. but why the equation appears at the center? and not at left? how can i allign it? – qwerty Apr 27 '11 at 17:29
