I would like insert the sign > or = in my latex report. I tried with \geq but that is not working.

I use the following :

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt,final]{article}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage[usenames,dvipsnames,svgnames,table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\usepackage[french]{babel}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{setspace}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[french]{varioref}
\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{eurosym}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{ucs}
\usepackage{pdfpages}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\renewcommand{\FrenchLabelItem}{\textbullet}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{supertabular}
\setlength{\doublerulesep}{\arrayrulewidth}
\usepackage[left=3cm, right=2.5cm, top=2.65cm, bottom=2.65cm]{geometry}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhead[LO]{}

When I want to write :

\item Selle Français ayant un pourcentage de sang de pur-sang anglais \geq à 75 \%,

That give me this compilation error : "command item invalid in math mode"

Can you help me please ?

using your header, \geq gives me a correct symbol. What happens in your case ? Do you have a compilation error ? You should add to your code an example of an equation reproducing your problem. –  Vincent Nivoliers Apr 9 '13 at 16:34
    
as you are using T1 encoding you can use > to get > and = to get = (but you should be using math mode really) –  David Carlisle Apr 9 '13 at 16:40
    
Yes, when I write : \item Selle Français ayant un pourcentage de sang de pur-sang anglais \geq à 75 \% that give me this compilation error : "command item invalid in math mode" –  Tidou Apr 9 '13 at 16:41

you need $ for math mode $\geq$ –  David Carlisle Apr 9 '13 at 16:44
