# What would be the symbol for 'multiplication on division'?

The symbol I would like to obtain ought to be like the symbol '\pm'.

• Is it by any chance that you need \divideontimes ?

• Absolutely, Adam! That is what I need. Is this the code I ought to use? Oct 30, 2014 at 6:34
• Yes. If this is what you want I am placing it as an answer.

• There are some questions on Math.SE about what this symbol is for, maybe you could provide some explanation on what you needed it for? older question / newer question Jul 16, 2016 at 18:17

The symbol you need to use is produced by the following command:

\divideontimes

Here are some possibilities with the use of unicode (just as a demonstrative addition to Adam's answer). The Unicode for this symbol is U+22C7.

% arara: lualatex

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{unicode-math}

\begin{document}
\noindent\setmainfont{code2000.ttf}\symbol{"22C7}\setmainfont{quivira.otf}\symbol{"22C7}\setmainfont{symbola.ttf}\symbol{"22C7}\\
$\divideontimes$\setmathfont{XITS Math}$\divideontimes$\setmathfont{Asana Math}$\divideontimes$\setmathfont{TeX Gyre Pagella Math}$\divideontimes$
\end{document}


PS: If you want to use one of the first-row symbols, you will have to wrap it in a \mathrel{} command.

• To LaRiFaRi, This is quite cool. I shall be so grateful to you for adding your knowledge to this matter. This may work perfectly. :) Oct 30, 2014 at 7:04
