# LaTeX align environment not working

Greetings,

I’m trying to add something like

\begin{align}
\begin{aligned}
2x+3 &= 7 & 2x+3-3 &= 7-3 \\
2x &= 4 & \frac{2x}2 &= \frac42\\
x &= 2
\end{aligned}
\end{align}


to my content page which should result in aligned equations (one on top of the other, essentially)

But I keep getting this

Not sure what is causing the formatting to get lost. I’m using the default MathJax.js that comes with hugo’s academic theme.

Hiya! The Academic theme was created by @neutreno. It has a dedicated issue queue and community chat.
