### Figures Side by Side extended into Margin

Hi guys,

I have some problems of figures side by side.

1. How to place figures like the "image1"? If someone could tell me how to manage them like "image2" (one figure occupies the body and has the same width as that of the body, while another occupies the margin and has the same width to that of the margin.), it could be perfect.

2. How to place the figure caption directly under the figure? You can say the caption 2 of image 1 or 3 is at the wrong place.

They are the four-in-hand knot, the half-Windsor knot, the Windsor knot and the Pratt knot. The first three are classic necktie knots that have been used for a long time. The Pratt knot is a more recent necktie knot that was introduced to the public in 1989.Below shows a comparison table of the four necktie knots, together with the bow tie. It helps you find the answer to the first question that may come up in your mind -- Which necktie knots do I need? Click the links on the left to see the instructions on tying a certain knot.\end{document}

Thanks a lot!

Is this a one-time occasion where you need a text figure and a margin figure side by side or will you figures always come in pairs? Should the figures be able to float like standard figures or should they be fixed?

It' not one-time stuff. I need to place two or three figures side by side many times but not in every case. It's better to adopt float figures, I guess, since the paper has not done yet.

If I move the page layout codes, the overlapping would disppear. However I have to keep these layout codes.
