I want to align two equations, one in the middle of the page and the other on the left hand side of the page.

$When\,\,t=1,\,C=10 \bigg)$ $$ \implies 10=Ae^{-t},$$

I would like it to be essentially on the same line, but the first statement is a little higher than the last part of the equation.

  • Could using a table be an acceptable solution? – ebosi Nov 30 '16 at 15:48
  • @ebo , I'll have a look, whether that works. – Gurjinder Nov 30 '16 at 15:54
  • Which equations? – Bernard Nov 30 '16 at 15:56
  • Surely you don't what When or the ) to be in math mode? Words should never be set in math italic. – David Carlisle Nov 30 '16 at 15:56
  • @DavidCarlisle , yeah, that is correct, how would format it so that 'when' is not in math mode? – Gurjinder Nov 30 '16 at 15:59

Maybe you mean one of these? I use flalign* and the eqparbox package:

\usepackage{eqparbox} %


 &\eqparbox{Lbox}{When\,\,$ t=1,\,C=10 \bigg) $} & \implies 10 & =Ae^{-t}, &\hspace{\eqboxwidth{Lbox}}&
\begin{flalign*} & & & & & \\
\intertext{Without \texttt{eqparbox}:}
& \text{When}\,\, t=1,\,C=10 \bigg) & \implies 10 & =Ae^{-t}, & & %

\end{document} enter image description here


A very simple (but not so elegant) way is to use tabularx environment. You create a table with 3 columns of the same width and then put the text in the first two, left aligned and centered respectively.


When $t=1,\,C=10 \bigg)$ & $\implies 10=Ae^{-t},$ &
