# Equality and Inference symbols in LaTeX

**Equality and Inference symbols** are used yo denote some relation between two physical quantities, numbers, sets, figures or any two things. For example, we use = when two things are equal else we use ≠ . We cannot use our keyboard to write these symbols directly as these are not present on our keyboard. So we need LATex code to write them.
