# [Tex/LaTex] How to write tilde ~ in math mode?

math-modesymbols

~ makes symbols after them 'phantoms'. I want just to write '~' in math mode and \~ doesn't work. How can I solve this problem?

(I want to write 'x is asymptotically normal distributed')

There are various ways to do it.

Mathmode

\sim

Using package amssymb

\thicksim

Textmode

\textasciitilde
