equation

\begin{equation} math formula \label{eqno1} \end{equation}The equation environment centers your equation on the page and places the equation number in the right margin.

The `\label` command is required
only if you want to use a `\ref`
command to refer to the number assigned to this equation.

The Display Math environment gives the
same effect without the equation number. LaTeX will **not**
break lines in displaymath or equation environments (but one may use
eqnarray instead).
