I've got a really simple question. I'd like to write a mathematical proof in LaTeX, so my document will contain both text and formulae embedded in it. For example, I want to add this to it:

enter image description here

How can I write this efficiently, without putting the entire text into an \mbox{} element?

Only wrap the equations in $...$, you can enter and leave math mode all throughout the document.

This page shows examples with formulas both inline in a paragraph and on their own lines.


If most of the content is math mode, the use \text{} to imbed text within equations.

\text{Let } D \subseteq \mathbf{R}, D \ne 0

or in inline mode: $\text{Let } D \subseteq \mathbf{R}, D \ne 0$
