The greater than or equal to symbol (≥) is often used in mathematics to indicate inequality between two values. However, this symbol is not supported by most computer keyboards, making it difficult to type. In this guide, we will teach you several methods for typing the greater than or equal to sign on your keyboard.
In mathematics, the greater than or equal to symbol (≥) represents that a value is either equal to (=) or greater than (>) another value. For example, x ≥ 2 means that the value of x is either equal to or greater than 2.
If you need to type the greater than or equal to symbol, you can use keyboard shortcuts. On a Windows keyboard, you can use the alt code Alt + 242. For Mac users, the keyboard shortcut is Option + >.
Alternatively, you can use the built-in symbol insertion feature in programs like Microsoft Word and Google Docs. In Microsoft Word, simply click Insert and then Symbol, and select the symbol you want to insert. In Google Docs, click Insert, then Special Characters, and search for the symbol by name.
If you still can’t find the symbol, you can use the Character Map application on your Windows computer to find and copy any symbol or special character.
These methods should help you easily insert the greater than or equal to symbol into your documents, regardless of your device or application.
