## "$"???? I understand how to use "$" as delimiters for math expressions in Mathjax. For example:

(3)                 ${Y _{t}} = {K _{t}}^\alpha {\left(L _{t}E _{t}\right)}^{1 - \alpha}$

But how do I then use "$" to denote, say,$50? The markdown/mathJax processors turn this line into:

What happens when I try to write $50? What does markdown/mathJax do to that? Or$1,000?

What if there is only one $50 on a line? Does having only one such dollar sign on a line (or in a paragraph) mean something to markdown/mathJax?  What if there is only one$50 on a line? Does having only one such dollar sign on a line (or in a paragraph) mean something to markdown/mathJax?

And is it only one $50 on a line that matters and triggers good behavior? Or does there have to be only one such dollar sign in a paragraph, becuase adding a second$50 triggers mathJax?

Is it as simple as putting a space after the "$" in, say,$ 50 and $1000? Does that work? It seems not...  Is it as simple as putting a space after the "$" in, say, $50 and$ 1000? Does that work? It seems not...

Can I escape the "$" signs with \$? Does that work? It seems not...

But when I add a second dollar sign into a paragraph, then mathJax gets triggered again. So $50 followed in the same paragraph by a$100 will trigger things?

And does it go horribly wrong when I add a second dollar sign into a paragraph, without escaping them both with \? So $50 followed in the same paragraph by a$100 will trigger things unless I escape them both with "\"?
