LaTeX
« on: March 19, 2016, 06:57:13 PM »

So I have just typed a LaTeX expression for the first time in my life (Here: http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=85093.0)

And I am confused about when to use $$, when to use  and when to use  to type LaTeX, I would like some clarification on this. Thanks! Logged Year 1 science student in HKUST and a Chemistry geek.

These are equivalent, with the latter being preferred.

and when to use 

tex tags give you an equation on its own line $$a=b$$, (note the comma being pushed down to the next line) while itex tags produce an in line equation $a=b$, which doesn't interrupt the flow of the text.
