# How to Write the Is Not Perpendicular To Symbol (⊥̸) in LaTeX

In LaTeX, you can write the is not perpendicular to symbol (⊥̸) using a combination of the `\perp`

command and the `\not`

command.

The following examples show how to write the is not perpendicular to symbol in LaTeX.

## How to Write the Is Not Perpendicular To Symbol in Text

We can use the `\not\perp`

command to write the is not perpendicular to symbol in LaTeX document for text.

Suppose we want to write the is not perpendicular to symbol in the text.

We can use the following LaTeX code to do so:

```
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}
This is an example of using the is not perpendicular to symbol \( a \not\perp b \) in a sentence.
\end{document}
```

Output: 👇️

```
This is an example of using the is not perpendicular to symbol a ⊥̸ b in a sentence.
```

In this example, we use the `\not\perp`

command to display the is not perpendicular to symbol in the text.

## How to Write the Is Not Perpendicular To Symbol in Mathematical Expressions

For mathematical expressions, we can use the `\not\perp`

command to ensure proper formatting.

Suppose we would like to write mathematical expressions that contain the is not perpendicular to symbol.

We can use the following LaTeX code to do so:

```
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}
An inline mathematical expression: \( a \not\perp b \).
A displayed mathematical expression:
\[
a \not\perp b
\]
\end{document}
```

Output: 👇️

In this example, we use the `\not\perp`

command to denote the is not perpendicular to symbol in both inline and displayed mathematical expressions.

## Conclusion

You can use the `\not\perp`

command for both text and mathematical expressions. This ensures that the is not perpendicular to symbol is properly formatted and displayed in your LaTeX document.
