# How can I an place a figure next to an equation?

I'm new to LaTeX. This is my first script, an exercise. I'm try to place a 4 figures (SCfigure) I already charted with KmPlot next to its correspondent equations, but they always appear on the next page. Any suggestions?

• Welcome to TeX.SE. equation is a dipla ymath environment which means it uses the full line width. You need to place these in minipages to get the next to each other. – Peter Grill Sep 14 '12 at 18:03

You can use minipages to fix this, as demonstrated below

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\usepackage{sidecap}

\begin{document}

\begin{SCfigure}
\begin{minipage}{.5\textwidth}
$$f(x)=x^2$$
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}{.5\textwidth}
\centering
\includegraphics{myimage}
\caption{My figure}
\end{minipage}
\end{SCfigure}

\end{document}


The minipage takes one mandatory argument, <width>, which I have specified in terms of the \textwidth; you can change it as you see fit.
