Hi,

Is this what you want to achieve:

%%%%%% begin
\starttext

From Aditya's \type{mathalign.pdf}, where he defines in fact a 
\type{\definemathalignment[flalign]}, 
(but I prefer \type{FLalign]…) one has

\definemathalignment[FLalign] [m=2, distance=5em plus 1 fil] %We need to set a 
default value for m

Curiouslearn'  input was:
\startformula
\startalign
\NC\text{\bf Example: }  \frac{d(4x^{2})}{dx} = 4
\frac{dx^{2}}{dx} = 4 (2x) = 8x.\NC{ }\NR
\stopalign
\stopformula

\startformula
\startFLalign %% here you can add [m=2] or [m=3] if you need more columns
\NC\text{\bf Example: }  \frac{d(4x^{2})}{dx} = 4
\frac{dx^{2}}{dx} = 4 (2x) = 8x.\NC \NC \NR %% note twice \NC
\stopFLalign
\stopformula

\stoptext
%%%%%% end

Best regards: OK
