```Hello,

What is the easiest way to align successive mathematical steps after
For example, I would like to typeset something like the following:

32 = 1 x 32
=  2 x 16
=  4 x 8

How can this be accomplished with the equal signs aligned (going down
the page)?

Thank you,
Ray L.

The align environment from amsmath.

For a good guide that answers most of these kinds of questions, take a
look at Herb Voss' mathmode documentation. (In addition the the amsmath
documentation itself). (Both are included as part of TeXLive and MikTeX).
