I am writing an equation using the following

\max\{|P_4|\} = \frac{m+2}{2}

which gives me output in the following way:

enter image description here

Can I insert the equation with equation number just after text? Is it possible to do so? It is taking too much space on a page and I have to write at least six such equations. Kindly help.

    (1) never use eqnarray, see tex.stackexchange.com/a/197/3929, (2) it will probably be very bad for the reader if the (1) is hidden as a part of the text, they will see it as a reference to an equation number they cannot find. – daleif May 2 '18 at 13:39

I am not sure whether this is what you had in mind, I can delete this post otherwise.

A shortest $u_0-u_i$ path is $P_1:u_0,v_0,v_3,v_6,\cdots,v_i,u_i$ containing $i/3$ 
edges from $C_1$ and two edges from $M$. Length of $P_1$ is $(i+6)/2$ and maximum
of $P_1$ is for $i=3m/2$, i.e., \inlineequation[eq:inline]{\max\{|P_4|\} = (m+2)/2}\\

Now a reference to Eq.~(\ref{eq:inline}), which states that
