\dots Line Alinement

Postby tpa77l3 » Wed Feb 26, 2020 7:55 am

Hi guys,

Quick question from a newbie, please.

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. \begin{align*}
  2. 1.85\dots &= (1.85\dots \times 60)\text{\,min}\\
  3. &= 51.50\dots \text{\,min}\\
  4. &\approx 52\text{\,min}
  5. \end{align*}


Gives:

I've played around and found the \times is causing the \dots to appear vertically centred next to the second 1.85 on the first line. How do I get them to appear as on the second line, i.e. not vertically centred?

Thanks.

Use \ldots.

You should take siunitx for the units.

Nice! Thanks for pointing me in the direction of siunitx - so much to learn!
