# Split long equations into multiple lines in LaTeX

This article presents two ways to split long equations into multiple lines with and without alignment.

# 1. Split equations

Use multline or split provided by amsmath package.

• Use multline to split equations without alignment (first line left, last line right)
• Use split to split equations with alignment

Here are examples:

For more info, refer to User’s Guide for the amsmath Package.

# 2. The source code

The corresponding source code is as follows:

(i).Use equation:
$$1+2+3+4+8x+7=1+2+3+4+4x+35 \\ \Rightarrow x=7$$

(ii).Use \emph{multline} to split equations without alignment:
\begin{multline}$$1+2+3+4+8x+7=1+2+3+4+4x+35 \\ \Rightarrow x=7$$\end{multline}

(iii).Use \emph{split} to split equations with alignment
$$\begin{split} 1+2+3+4+8x+7 & =1+2+3+4+4x+35 \\ & \Rightarrow x=7 \end{split}$$
