    I want to write LATeX code whose output should look like this:

    A = B + C
      = 2 + 3

    I'm trying to write the following code in LATeX:

    A &= B + C \\
      &= 2 + 3

    But the output of this code is:

    A = B + C = 2 + 3

    How to change the latex code to achieve the required output?

      And don't forget \end{align} (or whatever you use).

    @egreg Of course you are right, but there are tons of ways to write a multiline equation, so that I just pointed out one way and linked the documentation. If I was missing any important things, feel free to add them.
