I have this

\item $K_{1}= K_{s}(N_{yy}-N_{zz})$
\item $K_{2}= K_{s}N_{yz}$

But I'd like it to be displayed as in this picture:

enter image description here

The problem is whatever combination of environments I try with "begin align", "begin equation" or "begin itemize" gives me errors.

I need an equation flushed to the left with a bullet and following the same numbering as every other equations. :(

Something like this?

enter image description here

\usepackage{amsmath} % for 'flalign' environment
\counterwithin{equation}{section} % just for this example

\setcounter{section}{1}   % just for this example

\bullet\quad K_1 &= K_{s}(N_{yy}-N_{zz})& \\
\bullet\quad K_2 &= K_{s}N_{yz} \notag

  • Am I correct in understanding that flalign treats a list of equations as one (equation) in terms of numbering?

  • Thanks for clarifying that (and I need to clean my glasses as I overlooked the notag option ... )

    @alchemist - (redo b/c my earlier comment had too many typos) Short answer: No. Slightly longer answer: By default, each row of an flalign construct gets its own equation number. To override the default, it is.necessary to issue a \notag (or \nonumber) instruction in each row that is not supposed to be numbered. Hence the presence of a \notag directive in row 2 of the answer I posted.
