I would like to get this WITHOUT using tables, because in my real equations there are fractions included that are scaled down in tables

```
a+b+c=1
y =2
```

My code looks as follows:

```
\begin{align*}
&a+b+c&=1\\
&y &=2
\end{align*}
```

But it doesn't work. I tried thousands of things such as `flalign`

and so on. But nothing works. I am really frustrated. Any ideas?

## Best Answer

You can use "big fractions" also inside

`array`

; using the`array`

package helps, so sayin your preamble. Then you can use

just as a single (math) object that you can put anywhere you like. Adding

`\vphantom{\frac{2}{3}}`

before the`\\`

in the first row can help spacing.For example, with

you'll get the object flush with the left margin.
