I am trying to write a bunch of short equations (subequations, actually) in a single line, and have their numbering clubbed and mentioned at the side end, mentioning them as a range for three or more equations.

Something like this:Equation: example

So far, I found how to write the equations in one line with individual numbering beside each: How to place and number 3 short equations in one line?

But didn't quite get what I am looking for. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

if i correctly understood you, than you looking for this:

enter image description here


2=1+1,   \quad   2=1+1,   \quad   2=1+1,    \tag{\theequation a-c} \\
2=1+1,   \quad   2=1+1,                     \tag{\theequation d,e}
see \eqref{eq:1}, \eqref{eq:2} and \eqref{eq:3}, however sub-equations letters you need to add manually: (\ref{eq:2}a) and (\ref{eq:2}d).
