Adding Multi-line Equations in the LaTeX Math Block Macro
In LaTeX formats equations, the double backslash command\\
is used to create a new line or initiate a line break. The double backslash command \\
generates the following code in the LaTex Math Block macro and creates a new line automatically.
Syntax:
\begin{align}
<equation 1> \\
<equation 2> \\
<equation 3>
\end{align}
Note:
The \\
command is used to create a new line and automatically aligns equations to the right. To have equations left-aligned, place the &
symbol before each equation when entering them.
