A couple of comments:

1. the alignment of the third column ought to be with "l" (not "r");
2. if, e.g., the r.h.s. of one of the first two equations is longer (say,
1+p) then the output looks a little odd since the box is always as wide as
the table and not a given entry (the same is also true w.r.t. the l.h.s.).

Cheers,  Phil
