# LaTeX Making Paragraphs

A paragraph is ended by one or more completely blank lines -- lines not containing even an %. A blank line should not appear where a new paragraph cannot be started, such as in math mode or in the argument of a sectioning command.

### \indent

This produces a horizontal space whose width equals the width of the paragraph indentation. It is used to add paragraph indentation where it would otherwise be suppressed.

### \noindent

When used at the beginning of the paragraph, it suppresses the paragraph indentation. It has no effect when used in the middle of a paragraph.

### \par

Equivalent to a blank line; often used to make command or environment definitions easier to read.
