Does anyone know what the LaTeX code for the “not equivalent to” symbol is? It’s this symbol: ≢

It’s not\nequiv. I’ve tried that and it doesn’t work.

If you type [math]\not\equiv[/tex] then you will get $\displaystyle \not\equiv$.

In fact, I’ve found out that

**\not**puts a slash over the immediately following character, whatever it might be. This is useful for something like

$\displaystyle \color{white}.\quad\color{black}\frac{3}{\not8_{\, 4}}\times\frac{\not6^{\,3}}{\!7}\ =\ \frac{9}{28}$

It only does one character at a time, though. Thanks for the help. (Handshake) - Dec 31st 2007, 02:10 PMJhevon
