# New Line in Latex in $$watch 1. Hi, just wondering if anyone would be able to help me? I'm trying to write a list using Latex and I want it to come out so it reads like ((1,a),(2,B,->)) ((1,b),(2,B,->)) ... I've typed it up using$$
((1,a),(2,B,\rightarrow))
\\
((1,b),(2,B,\rightarrow))
$$although this just leaves me with ((1,a),(2,B,->))((1,b),(2,B,->)). I could do it like$$
((1,a),(2,B,\rightarrow))

((1,b),(2,B,\rightarrow))
$$but that kinda spaces it out too much. Any pointers would be much appreciated. Thank youuu! 2.$$((1,a),(2,B,\rightarrow)) \newline ((1,b),(2,B,\rightarrow)) should work
3. Hi. Thanks for your reply, although that didn't work either. I'm really confused as to why it didn't, as the guides I've Googled all seem to imply that \\ or \newline should work, unless I'm massively misunderstanding something.

I managed to get round it by just placing each line in single \$ and using // between them, though I'd be interested if anyone has any suggestions how I can do it without doing that, as it feels a bit like cheating!
