I've got a problem with LaTeX and Wordpress. I want to put my formula inline with the rest of the text. I've tried several solutions, but none of them worked. I'm using Easy WP LaTeX plugin. Here's the formula:

blablabla $$A = \left \{ a_{1}, ..., a_{n} \right \}!$$ blablablabla...

I've tried this one, too:

blablabla $$\inline A = \left \{ a_{1}, ..., a_{n} \right \}$$ blablablabla...

But it's still in another line alone. What can be the problem?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You would need $$A = \left\{ a_{1}, ..., a_{n} \right\}!$$ –  Werner May 5 '13 at 19:51
It doesn't work. The ! symbol disappears, and this is all i see:blablabla $$A = \left\{ a_{1}, ..., a_{n} \right\}$$ blabla. So it's displayed as a text without the ! –  molnardenes May 5 '13 at 20:08
Put the ! outside the math expression then. It doesn't seem like you're referring to factorial notation. I'm not that familiar with MathJax to know all the ins-and-outs. –  Werner May 5 '13 at 20:11

If you wish to display math content together with inline text, use

...some text [math]A = \left\{ a_{1}, ..., a_{n} \right\}[/math]! some more text...

The reason why ! should be excluded from the math content - in that particular spot - is because it is an active character within the plugin. If a math expression starts with !, it turns it into a display equation. If it ends with !, it suppresses the formula output.
