\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[fleqn]{amsmath}
\usepackage{mathrsfs}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\pagestyle{empty}
\setlength\mathindent{0pt}
\begin{document}
\[3x^3\]
\[3x^2\]
\[3x\]
\[3\]
\end{document}

When I render this document, there is a lot more space between the first two options than between the second and third options. Is there a way to make sure it's consistent? Thanks!

    BTW, you might want \usepackage{mathtools} instead of amsmath. It fixes a couple of bugs and adds a feature or two. To read about mathtools, run texdoc mathtools in a terminal (assuming you have it installed, of course)

  • @kahen: shouldn't one use both? (Though I guess mathtools automatically includes amsmath?)

  • @Caramdir: Yes, it's automatically included. From the mathtools documentation: a line like \usepackage[fleqn,tbtags]{mathtools} is equivalent to \usepackage[fleqn,tbtags]{amsmath}\usepackage{mathtools}. Nov 23 '10 at 14:03

Use gather* to put several equations after each other.

\begin{gather*}
3x^3\\
3x^2\\
3x\\
3
\end{gather*}

  • Awesome! That works perfectly. Thanks for helping this TeX noob! Nov 23 '10 at 5:32
