This one seems to be a rather simple question but right now I just run out of ideas. I simply want to left align a displayed equation using plain TeX, that is, I want the equation to start from the very left of the page but with the usual size of a displayed equation (thats why using just one '$' doesn't work). Please help!

    How about: $\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^4 i=10$?

You could use the \displaystyle iside $ formular $.


Left aligned formular:

$\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^4 i=10$
