# Math Help - \begin{align*} and \begin{align}

1. ## \begin{align*} and \begin{align}

What is the difference between

\ begin{align*}
\ end{align*}

and

\ begin{align}
\ end{align}

(I skipped spaces)

?

It should number aligned lines or something... Maybe it doesn't work on the forum?

2. ## Re: \begin{align*} and \begin{align}

Without the asterix, you can expect each line to be numbered. Adding the asterix suppresses the numbering.

3. ## Re: \begin{align*} and \begin{align}

I see. But it doesn't work on MHF? Because I don't see any difference if I type either here.

4. ## Re: \begin{align*} and \begin{align}

It may be the compiler, I just use standard LaTeX codes...
