# Using MathJax in text

I have installed a Mathjax plugin on my local wordpress installation, and the plugin works fine. However, I can't get it to show Latex in-text; it creates an own line for every latex formula. I end up with pages like this (this is an extreme example to get my point across better :)):

How can I make it work to show Latex in-text? I've tried multiple plugins and they all seem to have this issue, with no option to resolve this.

what kind of Latex commands do you use there ? – birgire Apr 19 '13 at 19:52
I just use $$latex here$$. No matter what's between the dollar signs, the plugin will give it its own line. – Ben Apr 19 '13 at 20:00

To create an inline formula in LaTeX we can use single dollar signs $: This formula$x=y+z$is inline.  To display math on its own line, we can use double dollar signs $$: $$ a = b + c$\$
