This question already has an answer here:
I know it's much better to use
\[ \] over
$$ $$ when typesetting math equations on their own line (I believe this is called display math?) But is it also inappropriate to use
$ $ for in-line math over
\( \)? If so, what are the reasons? I find the latter much more cumbersome to type, so I'd only like to use it if there's a good reason.
