This is particularly 33 A TEX intro (Canadian spelling) Section 5: No math anxiety here! useful for displayed mathematics. Hence “x = y + 1 whenever y = x − 1” can be typeset using $x=y+1 \hbox{ whenever }y=x-1$. Note the spaces on either side of the word within the braces. Usually it isn’t necessary to insert spaces into mathematical text, but here are the control sequences that do the job. Adding space to mathematical text Name Double quad Quad Space Thick space Medium space Thin space Negative thin space Control Sequence ←Size→ \qquad \quad \ \; \> \, \!

Note the spacing in the You shouldn’t have any blank lines between the dollar signs delimiting the mathematical text. TEX assumes that all the mathematical text being typeset is in one paragraph, and a blank line starts a new paragraph; consequently, this will generate an error message. This turns out to be useful, for one of the easiest errors to make is to forget to put in the trailing dollar sign(s) after the mathematical input (I promise that you’ll do it at least once while learning TEX); if TEX allowed more than one paragraph to be between the dollars signs, then one omitted trailing dollar sign might cause the rest of the document to be typeset as mathematics.

So while nothing is typeset, the extra space due to the values of \baselineskip and \parskip will add extra space. An easier method is to use \vglue instead of \vskip to get the desired result. Thus \vglue 1 in will leave one inch of blank space at the top of the page. We can note in passing that there is another more general method to put material at the top of a page using the control words \topinsert and \endinsert. If \topinsert . . \endinsert is used within a page, the material between \topinsert and \endinsert will appear at the top of the page, if possible.
