This question already has an answer here:

Hi i am having a problem making a custom tag for this equation

        C_1 = \theta \left(Y_1^L -T_1+\frac{1}{1+r}(Y_2^L+T_2)+V_1\right) \tag(3)

I want to refer to an equation from a book (as part of my class) which i called equation 3. But i simply can't change it without getting a lot of syntax errors.

I have tryed different things form the forum, but so far without luck.

Hope you can help.

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.


Just eliminate those stars coming after equations *. This is true fact in most cases of latex. With putting some star, you may present your equations without having numbers or tags.

  • Can you maybe expand you nswer a bit? Bernard already adviced that in the comments and we like answers to be a tiny bit more verbose. – Johannes_B Oct 8 '16 at 15:45
