[Tex/LaTex] Less AND greater than symbol


I need to know, if it's possible, how I can write a unique "less AND greater than" symbol in LaTeX: for example X >< 5.

Best Answer

That's not possible (unless you write the greater than symbol followed by the less than symbol).

You can find a comprehensive list of LaTeX symbols here.


For something that looks like an horizontal X, check out \times and \openJoin in the document.

For one over the other, check \lessgtr, from comments I think that's what you're looking for : enter image description here
