I would normally write an equation followed by some text like this:

```
\begin{equation}
2+1
\end{equation}
where...
```

In which case the where clause is NOT indented.

Now, I need to use sloppypar in the paragraph with the where clause because the inline math formulas will run into the margin otherwise, like this:

```
\begin{equation}
2+1
\end{equation}
\begin{sloppypar}
where...
\end{sloppypar}
```

The problem is that when I do it, the paragraph gets indented, like a new paragraph. How to avoid it?

## Best Answer

The environment

`sloppypar`

is basically defined asJust define a new environment that omits the initial

`\par`

to be used in this and similar cases (that is, after math displays).
