equation

 \begin{equation}
  math formula
 \label{eqno1}
 \end{equation}

The equation environment centers your equation on the page and places the equation number in the right margin.

The \label command is required only if you want to use a \ref command to refer to the number assigned to this equation.

The Display Math environment gives the same effect without the equation number.
