I'm using Mathjax offline and all equations and expressions are rendered perfectly but the dollar symbol renders as given in the title(can't write it here).Is there anyway to render it as the dollar symbol($)?

For example dollar 6000 is rendered as $\1600

Yes, if you escape your dollar sign: $\$$ gives $\$$.

I.e. inside a math environment: $\$ 6000$ gives $\$ 6000$. In plain text, just use \$6000 to get \$6000.
