Found 2 solutions by stanbon, jim_thompson5910:Answer by stanbon(57356)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Using a standard American keyboard, how do I enter a square root symbol ?:: use "sqrt" How do I enter an exponent ?::: use ^(power) or "to the---power" How do I enter a pi symbol ?::: use 3.14 or (22/7) How do I enter a greater than or less than symbol ?::: use > or "greater than" ; use < or "less than" How do I enter does not equal symbol ?::: use "is not equal to" How to enter e ::: use 2.1828.. If you can add any other 'problematic' keyboard entries it would be greatly appreciated. ==================== Cheers, Stan H. Answer by jim_thompson5910(28595)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You can use the character map, but it may not have everything you're looking for. So I recommend that you simply use the following: Square root: type sqrt(6) to denote Exponent: type x^3 (shift + 6 to get the ^ symbol) to get Pi: This is just pi. You can also find this in the character map. Greater than symbol: Simply use ">" (without quotes) Less than symbol: Use "<" (without quotes) Does not equal (or not equal) symbol: Either use =/= or <> to represent something like . In addition to square roots, you have other nth roots (eg cube roots). I'd suggest you type root(3,x) to write out . Fourth roots would then be root(4,y) to get etc. Also, there is the greater than or equal to symbol. So to write out , just type x >= 3. In reverse, the less than or equal symbol is typed out as "<=" (without quotes). For instance, to type , write y <= 5. I'm sure that there are a ton of other things that you can't directly enter from the keyboard, but nothing else is coming to mind.
