Are you using $$$$formula$$$$?
Are you using $$formula$$ (and similar such
as with gather, align, etc.)?
Are your equations being numbered separately?

Do note that the formula will no longer be centered. I think following
the last \hfill with a space the same size as the triangle would
correct this, though. I can't remember what the command(s) is(are) to
get that amount of space. I suppose, since you only have to do it once
(repeated later), you could use brute force and just get the once, too.

The funny thing seems to be that when using this for equation, gather,
etc., you want to use fleqn to center (again with the slight error)
it. But this does then allow equation numbers to be present. Can he
change between fleqn and normal on the fly somehow so he doesn't have
to put \hfill twice into every normal equation line?
