Lesson 1.4: Signs of Comparison: The Equal Sign
The equals sign is a sign of comparison. It is formed with a prefix and a root. The equals sign uses a dot five prefix in the first cell and dots two three five six in the second cell.
A blank space is left before and after the equals sign and all other signs of comparison. A space terminates numeric mode. The numeric indicator is required before the numeral that follows the equals sign.
The sign of comparison is used whenever the symbol appears in print. Print spacing should be followed.
