This question already has an answer here:

To typeset a collection of equations with alignment, I am using align* from amsmath. Some of these equations have right-hand sides that have multiple lines that should be indented. So far I am using a nested aligned environment and \MoveEqLeft from the mathtools package:


  x+y &= z+w \\
    a &= \begin{aligned}[t]
           b+c+d \\
           &+e+f \\

The problem is that the aligned environment seems to introduce extra horizontal space to the left (and possibly on the right as well). How can I eliminate the extra space from aligned?

I am open to other solutions that might avoid aligned, but I do not want to need to manually insert spaces to indent the lines.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • This has already been discussed, I'll try finding the relevant question. But \!\begin{aligned} will remove the space. There's no space added at the end. – egreg Oct 17 '13 at 16:46
