enter image description here In $\displaystyle\frac{dx(t)}{dt}$. Is it possible to align $dx(t)$ with $dt$? Well, as I write it, it looks wrong.


1 Answer 1


You can use \hfill in the denominator of the fraction to force left alignment if that is what you are looking for. You could also typeset the term a bit more balanced by having the x(t) outside the fraction.

EDIT: As @Zarko says, you can save yourself the \displaystyle command by using \dfrac{}{} from the mathtools package.

  • what about mathtools and $\dfarc{dx(t)}{dt\hfill}$ or $\dfrac{d}{dt} x(t)$ ?
