Code:

\begin{align*}         & F_0=1    & S_0=1 \\         & F_1=1    & S_1=1+1=1 \\         & F_2=1+1=2 & S_2=1+1+2=4 \\         & F_3=1+2=3 & S_3=1+1+2+3=7 \\         & F_4=2+3=5 & S_4=1+1+2+3+5=12 \\         & F_5=3+5=8 & S_5=1+1+2+3+5+8=2 \end{align*}
When I try the above LaTeX code in regular LaTeX (that is, not forum LaTeX like on here), I get the two columns that I want, but the second column is right aligned. How can I make both columns left align?

I've made many other attempts, including no line end slashes (which put everyting on one line):
Code:

\begin{align*}         & F_0=1    & S_0=1         & F_1=1    & S_1=1+1=1         & F_2=1+1=2 & S_2=1+1+2=4         & F_3=1+2=3 & S_3=1+1+2+3=7         & F_4=2+3=5 & S_4=1+1+2+3+5=12         & F_5=3+5=8 & S_5=1+1+2+3+5+8=2 \end{align*}
...and putting an ampersand at the end of each line:
Code:

\begin{align*}         & F_0=1    & S_0=1 &\\         & F_1=1    & S_1=1+1=1 &\\         & F_2=1+1=2 & S_2=1+1+2=4 &\\         & F_3=1+2=3 & S_3=1+1+2+3=7 &\\         & F_4=2+3=5 & S_4=1+1+2+3+5=12 &\\         & F_5=3+5=8 & S_5=1+1+2+3+5+8=2 & \end{align*}
But it always right aligns. Thank in advance.

Use the array

Code:

begin{array}{l l}         & F_0=1    & S_0=1 \\         & F_1=1    & S_1=1+1=1 \\         & F_2=1+1=2 & S_2=1+1+2=4 \\         & F_3=1+2=3 & S_3=1+1+2+3=7 \\         & F_4=2+3=5 & S_4=1+1+2+3+5=12 \\         & F_5=3+5=8 & S_5=1+1+2+3+5+8=2 \end{array}
if you use r = right c =center l =left
