# [texhax] Simultaneous Equations?

Hi,

I'm having a big problem trying to display simultaneous equations.

I want something like:

$\left\{ \begin{array}{rclr} foo&=&bar\\ bar&=&foo \end{array} \right.$

but with both equations numbered.

Using:

$\left\{ \begin{array}{rclr} foo&=&bar&\addtocounter{equation}{1}(\theequation)\\ bar&=&foo&\addtocounter{equation}{1}(\theequation) \end{array} \right.$

doesn't display the equation number in line with equation numbers
from {align} or {eqnarray}'s etc, and so looks messy.

I just want two numbered equations, with one { to the left of them.

I'm using LaTeX.

Any help would be great

Thanks,
Gavin Baker
