# Equation Number in Latex on left side

• LaTeX

## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

When I typeset equations with automatic labeling, the labels (numbers) appear on the left side of the page. I want them on the right side -- where they seem to go by default for everyone else. I'm using TexShop v2.37 for mac.

Is there a problem with my template?
I'm using:
\documentclass[12pt]{amsart}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{mathtools}
\geometry{letterpaper}

Then I'll have something like $$a=b$$

How can one customize which side of the page equation numbers appear on?

\documentclass[reqno, 12pt]{amsart}
