# Forcing \textwidth tables in LaTeX

When adding tables in $\LaTeX$, sometimes it is annoying to adjust the size of various tables, especially so when two tables are back to back but don't have the same width.

I prefer to address this issue by forcing all tables to have \textwidth, regardless of their contents. A neat way to accomplish this is noted here by making use of the tabular* environment.

In the same StackExchange answer, I also learned it is possible to include multiple tabular's (or subtable) in a single table environment, which is quite convenient.
