# itemize equations

I would like to itemize some equations but they don't appear on the same line as the bullets.

Here is a code example.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item\begin{equation*}
Pr( Y= n)  = \frac{e^{-7}\times 7^n}{n!}
\end{equation*}

\item\begin{equation*}
Pr(X = m)  = \frac{e^{-4}\times 4^m}{m!}
\end{equation*}
\end{itemize}
\end{document}


How can I solve this?

Use inline equations, you can make them bigger by using \displaystyle. You can also achieve the same for fractions by using \dfrac from the amsmath package (thanks @cmhughes for the suggestion).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}
\begin{itemize}
\item $Pr( Y= n) = \frac{e^{-7}\times 7^n}{n!}$
\item $Pr(X = m) = \frac{e^{-4}\times 4^m}{m!}$
\item $\displaystyle Pr( Y= n) = \frac{e^{-7}\times 7^n}{n!}$
\item $\displaystyle Pr(X = m) = \frac{e^{-4}\times 4^m}{m!}$
\item $Pr( Y= n) = \dfrac{e^{-7}\times 7^n}{n!}$
\item $Pr(X = m) = \dfrac{e^{-4}\times 4^m}{m!}$
\end{itemize}
\end{document}


Result: • +1 could you add the option to use \dfrac from the amsmath package too? – cmhughes Oct 21 '12 at 19:49
• How can one number each of these equations (in a manner similar to the equation environment)? – Neha Karanjkar Aug 14 '17 at 9:50
