The pair of templates {{EquationRef}} and {{EquationNote}} is used for labeling equations in text.

For example, :{{EquationRef|Eq. 1}} <math>x^2+x+1=0</math> results in:

Eq. 1 x^2+x+1=0

Here, the identifier "Eq. 1" is a label which can be later referred to with a call to {{EquationNote}}. That is, {{EquationNote|Eq. 1}} produces a link Eq. 1 to this equation.

Similarly, :{{EquationRef|2|Eq. 2:}} <math>x^2-2x+1=0</math> results in

Eq. 2: x^2-2x+1=0

which can be referred to by {{EquationNote|2}} or even {{EquationNote|2|Equation 2}} (i.e., Equation 2).

This template can be used together with {{NumBlk}} to produce nicely formatted numbered equations. For instance:

  • {{NumBlk|::|<math>x^2+x+1=0</math>|{{EquationRef|3}}}} gives

Template:Repeat/0

x^2+x+1=0

 

 

 

 

(3)

Template:Repeat/0
which may then be referred to by {{EquationNote|3}} or even {{EquationNote|3|Eq. 3}} (i.e., Eq. 3).
  • {{NumBlk|::|<math>x^2+x+1=0</math>|{{EquationRef|4|Eq.4}}}} gives

Template:Repeat/0

x^2+x+1=0

 

 

 

 

(Eq.4)

Template:Repeat/0
which may be referred to by {{EquationNote|4}} (i.e., 4).
  • {{NumBlk|::|<math>x^2+x+1=0</math>|{{EquationRef|Eq.5}}}} gives

Template:Repeat/0

x^2+x+1=0

 

 

 

 

(Eq.5)

Template:Repeat/0
which may be referred to by {{EquationNote|Eq.5}} (i.e., Eq.5).
