LaTeX Equation Tag

  1. Nov 25, 2009 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I BADLY BADLY need to place a \blacksquare before my equations AND also have line numbers, as shown in the sample attachment.

    Someone please let me know how this can be done. My term paper is due in 2 hours!

    Re: [URGENT!] LaTeX Equation Tag


    is the command

    and you need the package amssymb called at the start.

    Yes, I knew the command (as stated in my post) and the package. But as I said, I needed to place the blacksquare on the left of the equation, and also simultaneously display the correct equation number on the right hand side. Oh and I forgot to mention that I had to do this only for a few equations (the key results).

    Thanks anyway.
