How do I reference an {equation} with the same equation number later in the document?
I have:
\begin{equations}
\begin{align}
y = mx + b
\end{align}
\end{equations}
And it shows that it's equation (1) in my document. How do I repeat that same equation later in my document after other equations with the same equation number (1)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1``` \begin{equation} \label{eq1} \begin{align} y = mx + b \end{align} \end{equations} ``` By adding the \label{eq1}, you can later type \ref{eq1} and it should reference your equation
