I am trying to put two subscripts at the left and right of a character. For example, something like: `_{t} p_{x}`

where p is in the middle. How do you do this?

## Best Answer

There are many tools for scripts:

For general math scripts before something, use

`\prescript`

provided by`mathtools`

package, for better alignment:`$ \prescript{14}{2}{\mathbf{C}} $`

For large operators, use

`\sideset`

from`amsmath`

:`$ \sideset{_a^b}{'}\sum A_n $`

For chemical equations, use

`mhchem`

package:`\ce{^{227}_{90}Th+}`

For tensors, use

`tensor`

package:`$ M\indices{^a_b^{cd}_e} $`

`$ \tensor[^a_b^c_d]{M}{^a_b^c_d} $`
