# How to give dots or point or period before the number of equation [duplicate]

Hi I want to ask how to give period before the number of equation.

For Example

A = B + C            ...(1)

• Like this: $$A=B+C \dots$$? Or if you prefer, A=B+C+ \cdots – Sigur Feb 12 '19 at 13:37
• After formating your post I see that you wrote dots very near the equation number. Do you really want that or dots should be after C? What is the meaning of dots near equation number? – Sigur Feb 12 '19 at 13:40
