This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. –  Christian Hupfer Aug 19 at 6:36
    
Do you mean \lesssim and \gtrsim from mathabx package? –  Christian Hupfer Aug 19 at 6:46
    
I'm not sure what those are, but I think I mean something else –  user60951 Aug 19 at 6:52

How about showing a screen shot what you are meaning, instead of letting us guess around? ;-) –  Christian Hupfer Aug 19 at 6:53

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\begin{document}
  The package \verb|amssymb| provides following:

  \verb|\lesssim| $\rightarrow \quad \lesssim$

  \verb|\gtrsim| $\rightarrow \quad \gtrsim$

  \verb|\lessapprox| $\rightarrow \quad \lessapprox$

  \verb|\gtrapprox| $\rightarrow \quad \gtrapprox$  
\end{document}
