Mathematics environments[edit]LaTeX needs to know beforehand that the subsequent text does indeed contain mathematical elements. This is because LaTeX typesets maths notation differently from normal text. Therefore, special environments have been declared for this purpose. They can be distinguished into two categories depending on how they are presented:text text formulas are displayed inline, that is, within the body of text where it is declared, for example, I can say that a + a = 2a within this sentence.displayed displayed formulas are separate from the main text.As maths require special environments, there are naturally the appropriate environment names you can use in the standard way. Unlike most other environments, however, there are some handy shorthands to declaring your formulas. The following table summarizes them:TypeInline (within text) formulasDisplayed equationsDisplayed and automatically numbered equationsEnvironmentmathdisplaymathequationLaTeX shorthand\(...\)\[...\]TeX shorthand$...$$$...$$Commentequation* (starred version) suppresses numbering, but requires amsmathSuggestion: Using the $$...$$ should be avoided, as it may cause problems, particularly with the AMS-LaTeX macros. Furthermore, should a problem occur, the error messages may not be helpful.The equation* and displaymath environments are functionally equivalent.If you are typing text normally, you are said to be in text mode, but while you are typing within one
