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
  • Thank you both very much! That is exactly what I was after! – user5073 Apr 25 '11 at 1:48
