TUG,

I would like to keep some text/equations and a figure side by side in
beamer frame. I mean, to divide the frame into half and keep text in
one and the figure in the other half

I tried following way(i have no experience using latex.. the below
code is just copy paste from here and there... but didnt work)

\begin{figure}
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.5\linewidth} page
{My Text and Equations goes here}
\end{minipage}
\hspace{0.5cm}
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.5\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=6cm]{myfig.pdf}
\caption{En liten bild till}
\end{minipage}
\end{figure}

But the figure is always coming below the text/equation which is not
what i like to have.

any tips in how to keep text/figures side by side in a bemer frame?

thanks,
Sreejith
