# Produce a power symbol ^ without Overleaf forcing math mode

I am writing MATLAB code into LaTex for a report and I would like to show the power symbol (^). However when I use h=2*(0.6.^i).*u; it raises i to a superscript and gives the message "I've inserted a begin-math/end-math symbol since I think you left one out. Proceed, with fingers crossed." Is there anyway it can still compile without math mode?

• Welcome to TeX.SE! If I correctly understood your question, than h=2*(0.6.\^{}i).*u should give what you looking for. – Zarko Aug 30 '19 at 0:35
• That should work, it looks smaller than normal, but should work, thank you! – caleb Aug 30 '19 at 0:38
• You can consider using \mathtt{h=2*(0.6.\^{}i).*u} – Sigur Aug 30 '19 at 0:47
• \verb|h=2*(0.6.^i).*u;|? – Henri Menke Aug 30 '19 at 1:28

Hope you are looking for verbatim format in text, as you are not providing any MWE, I assume that you are using standard template, and the codes are follows:
\documentclass{book}
