I don't know how to describe my question, but how might I be able to make the "lim" sit even with the text surrounding it? See image below.

I would like the "lim" to sit on the red line that I have added in. This is a minor thing that is really bugging me. I am using the "aligned" environment as in the following code:

Evaluate \begin{aligned}\lim_{h\to0}\frac{\sin(6x)}{x}\end{aligned}.

enter image description here

    Did you try Evaluate $\displaystyle\lim_{h\to0}\frac{\sin(6x)}{x}$. ? – user121799 Nov 10 '17 at 19:03
  • Wow, that seems to do the trick, and a lot nicer than aligned. Thanks! – clocktower Nov 10 '17 at 19:08

  • @marmot -- make that an answer. this question deserves to stick around, which isn't guaranteed if it's closed as "fixed in comments". – barbara beeton Nov 10 '17 at 19:58

    aligned is meant for setting multiline components. a fraction, regardless of having more than one visual level, is conceptually just a single line. – barbara beeton Nov 10 '17 at 20:02

In-text equations can (and probably always should) be bounded by $ symbols. That is, you get the desired alignment with

 Evaluate $\displaystyle\lim_{h\to0}\frac{\sin(6x)}{x}$.

  • er, um, ... aligned does accomplish horizontal alignment, but on multiple lines (the vertical component), not just one line. – barbara beeton Nov 10 '17 at 20:35
