 # How to Type Mathematical Symbols in MS Word

## How to Write Mathematical Symbols in MS Office

As a Mathematics Teacher, While setting test Papers or Practice Papers for students, I found it difficult to use different mathematical symbols which are used in Mathematics like theta, Sigma, Delta, Summation, etc.

Then I spent some time and came to know the different methods of typing Theta – one of the most searched queries of Bajrai Online Solutions.

As different Mathematical Symbols are also important so I thought to write them down so that it will help Mathematics teachers and students and also for them who set papers. ## How To Type Theta in MS Office:

As Theta is the Greek Small Letter. The Simple Method of Typing Maths Theta is by Going to Symbols and find Greek and Coptic in Subset Drop Down you will find Theta Symbol over there.

Go to –> Insert –> Symbol –> More Symbols –> In Subset Greek and Coptic  ## How to Type Partial Differentiation Symbol in MS Word

In Intermediate and Engineering , differentiation and Partial Differentiation is learned. Now, the issue is how to Type Partial Differentiation symbol?

Simply: 2206, Alt+ X

## How to type Summation Symbol ∑ in MS Word

Summation Symbol is also used widely in higher classes in Mathematics, to sum up, the big equations. The method to type summation symbol in MS Word is just to go to the Mathematical Operators in Symbols and find ∑ summation symbol.

Go to –> Insert –> Symbol –> More Symbols –> In Subset Mathematical Operators –> ∑

### Short Cut Method of Typing Summation Symbol on Keyboard

The shortcut method of typing the Summation symbol on the keyboard is type 2211 then hold the Alt key and press X.

Simply: 2211, Alt+ X

## How to Type Product Symbol ∏ in Word

In mathematics, we have to use this Product Symbol ∏ in many cases especially in higher classes. As mentioned above, you have to go to Mathematical Operators in Symbols and find this Product Symbol ∏.

Go to –> Insert –> Symbol –> More Symbols –> In Subset Mathematical Operators –> ∏

### Short Cut Method of Typing Product Symbol on Keyboard

The shortcut method of typing the Product symbol is to type 220F then hold the Alt key and press X.

Simply: 220F, Alt+ X.

## How to type Square Root Symbol √

The square root is one of the most used symbols in Mathematics. The method of typing Square root symbol in PC is just going to Mathematics operators in Symbols of MS Word and Find √ symbol.

Go to –> Insert –> Symbol –> More Symbols –> In Subset Mathematical Operators –> √

### Short Cut Method of Typing the Square Root Symbol on Keyboard

Simply: 221E, Alt+ X

## How to Type Therefore Symbol in MS Word

Therefore is also very useful in mathematics, but it is not used in framing questions, rather it is used in Answers where you are displaying your result. Therefore symbol is also used in science and English.

The Method to Type Therefore symbol in MS Word is just going to Insert and Find Equations in the last, click equations and you will find Therefore symbol in Basic Math drop down in the Equations as shown in the figure.

Go to –> Insert –> Equation –> Basic Math –> ∴

### Short Cut Method of Typing Therefore Symbol on Keyboard

The shortcut method of typing Therefore Symbol ∴ over the keyboard is type 2234 then hold the Alt key and Press X.

Simply: 2234, Alt+ X ### Conclusion:

You may have noticed that this is a long task to go to symbols and in that mathematical operators each and every time you use these symbols.

But not so long in MS Word because when you use a symbol once then it will be available in Recently Used Symbols in Symbol Drop down and you can use it from that or just memorize the shortcuts so that it will save your time.

If you think we missed some Mathematical Operators or shortcuts kindly do comment so that we will write them also.
