The Mathematical Symbol "Equiangular To (≚)"

The ≚ Symbol in Mathematics: Equiangular To

In the diverse universe of mathematical symbols, each has its own unique role and meaning. The ≚ symbol, denoting "Equiangular To", is no exception. In this article, we'll shed light on its use and significance, supplemented by illustrative examples.


The ≚ symbol is primarily used in geometry to indicate that two angles are not only equal in measure but share some additional geometric property or relationship. This can be a reflection of both the magnitude and nature of the angles in question.


  • Example 1: Given two angles, \( \angle A \) and \( \angle B \), if both angles have equal measure and share a specific geometric relationship, one might state:
    \( \angle A ≚ \angle B \)
    This indicates that not only are the angles equal in magnitude, but they are also equiangular in a specific context or geometric configuration.
  • Example 2: In the context of trigonometry, if two angles in different triangles share the same measure and a specific trigonometric relationship (e.g., they lead to the same sine value), it can be expressed as:
    \( \angle X ≚ \angle Y \)
    This suggests both the equality in measure and the shared trigonometric property.

In summary, the ≚ symbol offers a nuanced way to represent angles that are not only equal in measure but also share some additional geometric or trigonometric property. Its use enhances clarity and precision in geometrical discussions and proofs.

How To Insert the ≚ Symbol

(Method 1) Copy and paste the symbol.

The easiest way to get the ≚ symbol is to copy and paste it into your document.

Bear in mind that this is a UTF-8 encoded character. It must be encoded as UTF-8 at all stages (copying, replacing, editing, pasting), otherwise it will render as random characters or the dreaded �.

(Method 2) Use the "Alt Code."

If you have a keyboard with a numeric pad, you can use this method. Simply hold down the Alt key and type 8794. When you lift the Alt key, the symbol appears. ("Num Lock" must be on.)

(Method 3) Use the HTML Decimal Code (for webpages).

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &#8794;</b>My symbol: ≚

(Method 4) Use the HTML Entity Code (for webpages).

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &veeeq;</b>My symbol: ≚

(Method 5) Use the CSS Code (for webpages).

CSS and HTML TextOutput
span:after {
content: "\225A";}
<span>My symbol:</span>
My symbol: ≚

(Method 6) Use the HTML Hex Code (for webpages and HTML canvas).

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &#x225A;</b>My symbol: ≚
On the assumption that you already have your canvas and the context set up, use the Hex code in the format 0x225A to place the ≚ symbol on your canvas. For example:
JavaScript Text
const x = "0x"+"E9"
ctx.fillText(String.fromCodePoint(x), 5, 5);

(Method 7) Use the Unicode (for various, e.g. Microsoft Office, JavaScript, Perl).

The Unicode for ≚ is U+225A. The important part is the hexadecimal number after the U+, which is used in various formats. For example, in Microsoft Office applications (e.g. Word, PowerPoint), do the following:
[Hold down Alt]
[Press x]

(The 225A turns into ≚. Note that you can omit any leading zeros.)
In JavaScript, the syntax is \uXXXX. So, our example would be \u225A. (Note that the format is 4 hexadecimal characters.)
JavaScript TextOutput
let str = "\u225A"
document.write("My symbol: " + str)
My symbol: ≚
