The ≎ Symbol in Mathematics: Geometrically Equivalent To

In the vast realm of mathematical symbols, ≎ represents "Geometrically Equivalent To". This article will explain its significance and provide examples to illustrate its use.

## Usage

The ≎ symbol indicates that two geometric figures, although not necessarily congruent, are equivalent in a particular mathematical sense, such as in area or volume. The symbol serves as a nuanced way to communicate that two figures have a special relationship, often seen in geometry or calculus.

## Examples

• Example 1: Equivalent Areas:
Let's say two shapes, A and B, have different forms but cover the same area. This relationship can be expressed as $$A ≎ B$$, indicating that they're geometrically equivalent in terms of area.
• Example 2: Equivalent Volumes:
Consider two solids, X and Y. If they possess the same volume but different shapes, one can denote this relationship as $$X ≎ Y$$, signifying their geometric equivalence in volume.

In summary, the ≎ symbol captures the essence of geometric equivalence. It allows mathematicians to convey the concept of two figures being equivalent in a specific way without necessarily being identical or congruent.

## Codes for the ≎ Symbol

 The Symbol ≎ Alt Code Alt 8782 HTML Code ≎ HTML Entity ≎ CSS Code \224E Hex Code ≎ Unicode U+224E

## 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 8782. 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: &#8782;</b>My symbol: ≎

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

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &bump;</b>My symbol: ≎

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

CSS and HTML TextOutput
<style>
span:after {
content: "\224E";}
</style>
<span>My symbol:</span>
My symbol: ≎

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

HTML TextOutput
<b>My symbol: &#x224E;</b>My symbol: ≎
On the assumption that you already have your canvas and the context set up, use the Hex code in the format 0x224E to place the ≎ symbol on your canvas. For example:
JavaScript Text
const x = "0x"+"E9"
ctx.fillText(String.fromCodePoint(x), 5, 5);
Output

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

The Unicode for ≎ is U+224E. 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:
TypeOutput
224E
[Hold down Alt]
[Press x]

(The 224E turns into ≎. Note that you can omit any leading zeros.)
In JavaScript, the syntax is \uXXXX. So, our example would be \u224E. (Note that the format is 4 hexadecimal characters.)
JavaScript TextOutput
let str = "\u224E"
document.write("My symbol: " + str)
My symbol: ≎
