Take a look at this answer and you'll notice that in the comments on that answer, he provided mathematical expressions on a new line. Is that just because there was not enough space left on the line, so it skipped to a new line, or did he purposely do that? If so, how?

    $\begingroup$ Put two dollar signs on each side of an expression to force it to stand in the center of its own line. $\endgroup$ – user61527 Mar 4 '14 at 3:44

    $\begingroup$ @T.Bongers That's all I wanted. You can write that up as an answer and I'll accept it. $\endgroup$ – Michael Yaworski Mar 4 '14 at 3:53

    $\begingroup$ If you want to make a newline in comments, but you do not want math mode you might do the following: \$\$\mbox{ }\$\$. This will give the following $$\mbox{ }$$ as a space. $\endgroup$ – Baby Dragon Mar 5 '14 at 20:18

    $\begingroup$ @BabyDragon or you can just do four dollar signs. Do you know how to do it on Stack Overflow? $\endgroup$ – Michael Yaworski Mar 5 '14 at 20:46
