# [Tex/LaTex] Strikeout in math mode

math-modestrikeout

How can I strikeout words in math mode (similar to \sout with \usepackage{ulem} in text mode)? I've tried \usepackage{cancel} and $$\cancel{1+1=2}$$ but that draws a diagonal line.

Use something like

\sout{$a^2+b^2=c^2$}


or

$\hbox{\sout{a^2+b^2}}=c^2$


And you can of course define a command for convenience.
