The (in)equation here is flushed to the left:

\begin{equation}

\pi \geq e

\end{equation}

Among other things, it begins where this longer equation begins:

\begin{equation}

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + \cdots + 1 = n

\end{equation}

Some of the answers suggest using \displaystyle. This

does more than just change the placement of limits. It

also influences the size of operators like \int and \sum,

and it changes the size of built-up fractions. If you don't

necessarily want these side effects, use the \limits modifier.

Compare $\lim_{n\to\infty}\int_0^1 \frac{x}{n} \,dx = 0$ with

$\lim\limits_{n\to\infty}\int_0^1 \frac{x}{n} \,dx = 0$ and

$\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\int_0^1 \frac{x}{n} \,dx = 0$.

There is also \nolimits. When either of these follow a "math

operator" it forces the indicated placements. That is, \limits

forces _X and ^X to be placed above and below, while \nolimits

forces normal sub/superscript placement. If two or more

occur in succession, the last one applies.

Note, this actually requires \limits, as the definition

of \int includes the \nolimits modifier:

$\int\limits_0^1 x^n \,dx$

and

$$

\int\limits_0^1 x^n \,dx

$$
