Display asterisk in a blockquote

If I want to display an asterisk in a topic, I use backslash. *
When my topic is quoted, the backslash disappears in the blockquote and the text following the asterisk is displayed in emphasis.

I don’t understand the problem. If I type an asterisk here * and then blockquote it, there is no emphasis

If I type an asterisk here * and then blockquote it, there is no emphasis

If I wrap this in two asterisks there is emphasis, unless I * add a space *

Doesn’t really have anything to do with a blockquote, but the escaped \* is not carried over by the quoting function:

Which could matter if you want the *asterisks* as they are. Or aren’t escaping math, 3*5*2=30

Thanks for your time. I tested a little, seems like the ‘escape’ feature works in the expected way.
