How to write greater than or equal to(≥) symbol in LaTeX?

Mathematically, there are different inequalities symbols to represent “greater than or equal to”. However, the ≥ symbol is used in 99 percent of cases. And there is a default \geq command for this symbol.

Symbol Greater than or equal to
Type Inequalities
Package asmmath, mathabx
Command \geq, \geqslant, …,etc
Example \geq
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
  \[ a \geq b \]
  \[ p \geq q \]
\end{document}

Output :

Represent greater than or equal to symbol by latex

However, for other symbols, you need to use the amsmath and mathabx packages. For example

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,mathabx}
\begin{document}
  \[ p \eqslantgtr q \]
  \[ p \geqslant q \]
  \[ p \geqq q \]
  \[ p \gtreqless q \]
\end{document}

Output :

Use amsmath and mathabx package for other type greater than or equal to symbol.

And you can use not symbol with each of the above symbols.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,mathabx}
\begin{document}
  \[ a \ngeq b \]
  \[ a \ngeqslant b \]
  \[ a \ngeqq b \]
  \[ a \gneq b \]
  \[ a \gneqq b \]
\end{document}

Output :

use amsmath and mathabx package for not greater than or equal to symbol
