In the middle of an equation, I need to write to write a very short equation. When I use

   stuff >= other_stuff power (2)

I get the equation on the line that follows my phrase (automatic line jump).

How can I write the equation in the middfle of the phrase on the same line ?

Here is the code I used:

Only features with \begin{equation}\chi^2 >=10.83 
\end{equation}  are pre-selected.

Here is the result and I want to avoid it: enter image description here

    Surround the equation by $...$ or by \(...\) instead of \begin{equation}...\end{equation}. Jul 8, 2014 at 14:31

How about

$stuff >= other stuff$

Unfortunately, you won't get an equation number this way...
