Is it possible, that the text starts at the second line of the equation?

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item First thing:
      $\begin{aligned}[t]
      c^2&=a^2+b^2\\
      d^2&=e^2+f^2
      \end{aligned},$
      where $a,b$ and $c$ are supposed to be real numbers and $d,e$ and $f$ complex numbers, respectively.
\end{itemize}
\end{document}

  • anything is possible but it would look pretty weird, I would put the where... under the alignment Mar 3, 2018 at 15:58
  • Ok, how would I do that? And anyway, how would I achieve my first idea? Then I can decide what's better :)

  • Replace t by b.

  • No, that's not good, then the First thing is also moved to the bottom.

  • So, by text you mean where...?

I would do 3 or 4

enter image description here

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}
\item First thing:
      $\begin{aligned}[t]
      c^2&=a^2+b^2\\
      d^2&=e^2+f^2
      \end{aligned},$
      where $a,b$ and $c$ are supposed to be real numbers and $d,e$ and $f$ complex numbers, respectively.
\item First thing:
      \begin{align*}
      c^2&=a^2+b^2\\
      d^2&=e^2+f^2
      \end{align*}
      where $a,b$ and $c$ are supposed to be real numbers and $d,e$ and $f$ complex numbers, respectively.
\item First thing:\vspace{-5pt}
      \begin{align*}
      c^2&=a^2+b^2\\
      d^2&=e^2+f^2
      \end{align*}
      where $a,b$ and $c$ are supposed to be real numbers and $d,e$ and $f$ complex numbers, respectively.
\item First thing:
      $\begin{aligned}[t]
      c^2&=a^2+b^2\\
      d^2&=e^2+f^2
      \end{aligned},$

      where $a,b$ and $c$ are supposed to be real numbers and $d,e$ and $f$ complex numbers, respectively.

\item \mbox{}\\[-10pt]\raisebox{17pt}{First thing:}
      $\begin{aligned}[b]
      c^2&=a^2+b^2\\
      d^2&=e^2+f^2
      \end{aligned},$
      where $a,b$ and $c$ are supposed to be real numbers and $d,e$ and $f$ complex numbers, respectively.
\end{enumerate}

  • not every document class fails to indent a new paragraph in a list. Mar 3, 2018 at 21:32
  • @barbarabeeton true but one thing at a time:-) (might be a rare case that \\ is better than a blank line, I agree. Mar 3, 2018 at 21:38
  • no; if you're using aligned (which is sensible), \\ doesn't yield the same vertical spacing. it would be \noindent. Mar 3, 2018 at 22:12
