If I type

\begin{enumerate}    
    \item   
    \begin{align*}  
      eqn 1  
      eqn 2  
    \end{align*}  
\end{enumerate}

the label will appear on the first lines and the equations will appear on subsequent lines. How do I make it so that the equations begin on the same line as the enumerate label? Obviosly, I could manually adjust the location using \vspace and \rule, but is there a better way?

Are you sure you want to center the equations? –  egreg Jun 1 '12 at 19:36
    
Yes, to do the same task without centering, I use \item $\begin{aligned}[t] equations \end{aligned}$ –  richtera Jun 1 '12 at 22:17
    
OK, but I'm still dubious about the result. –  egreg Jun 1 '12 at 22:19
