# Math Help - How do you input the modulus sign?

1. ## How do you input the modulus sign?

I can't seem to find it on any of thecommand lists

2. Just use |x| in math tags, to get $|x|$

P.S: If you are wondering where | is, then (at least on my keyboard ), it is above the return key. You have to press shift and the \ key

$$\| x \|$$ gives:

$\| x \|$

while:

$$| x |$$ gives:

$| x |$
