# [texhax] Displaying math in the same line

Consider the following simple plain TeX file:

\noindent{\bf Pythagoras' Theorem:}
%\vskip-24pt
$$a^2+b^2=c^2$$
\bye

To my taste, the first line looks a bit "abandoned" because there is so
much space left.
If I uncomment the "vskip" line, I like it much better, but it's
technically not exactly clean.

Is there any kind of alternative you can propose?

Thanks,

Sören
