I want this in the Markdown language.

Enter image description here

I try the following code (that works for LaTeX):

\begin{equation}
  \begin{bmatrix}
    1 & 2 \\
    3 & 4 
  \end{bmatrix}
  \label{eq:aeqn}
\end{equation}

But it's not working for the Markdown language. It only create the matrix, but it does not label a number.

    That's not markdown - it is Tex/MathJax.

    @MCCCS it might look like a table but it definitely is not and the current answer can't go on that dupe so I don't think that duplicate is correct.

    So to be clear, you're saying you're using that code on one of our Stacks that support MathJax, and the matrix is rendering correctly, but its label isn't showing? Jun 30 '17 at 19:47

You can only do that on a site that has Mathjax enabled.

You might be able to fake it up by using code formatting.

|1   2|                            (1)
|3   4|

If you feel you need to be fancier, you can use graphics characters.

┌     ┐
│1   2│
│3   4│
└     ┘
