When doing circuit analysis calculations I use the mathematical therefore symbol in my calculations and need to document my iterations to support my analysis. There is no ASCII code for the "therefore" symbol. There is a UNICODE U+2211 for it that doesn't work. I had to cut and paste the one in the title. Any pointers here?

    \$\begingroup\$ Do you want this: ∴? The internet seems to think this should be U+2234, not U+2211. (But I'm not getting the correct symbol using Alt+2234) \$\endgroup\$ – The Photon Jul 1 at 18:58

    \$\begingroup\$ This would be a stack overflow question. On this group you would type in \$\Rightarrow\$ to get \$\Rightarrow\$. \$\endgroup\$ – TimWescott Jul 1 at 18:58

    \$\begingroup\$ Just use the HTML entity ∴, which renders as ∴ \$\endgroup\$ – Dave Tweed Jul 1 at 20:02

Did you google it?

Because the symbol is not usually available on keyboards and within fonts, and to prevent compatibility issues, users have substituted a colon followed by a period (":.") to represent it.

    \$\begingroup\$ Because I skipped over the freemasonry part as being of no interest. Strange they would put that there... \$\endgroup\$ – SamR Jul 1 at 19:20

On my iPad here with a BT keyboard.

FWIW

Mathjax

Basically use HTML for best or Mathjax which is “bound by \$ before and after \therefore

I am an EE, \$\therefore\$ I think outside the Ω box.

  • \$\begingroup\$ But no, therefore... Seems like I need to use :. but don't think others with a mathematical background will recognize it. \$\endgroup\$ – SamR Jul 1 at 19:37
