# Lesson 5.0: Miscellaneous Symbols

## Symbols

$°\phantom{\rule{.3em}{0ex}}\text{degree}$
⠘⠚

$%\phantom{\rule{.3em}{0ex}}\text{percent}$
⠨⠴

$\prime \phantom{\rule{.3em}{0ex}}\text{prime}$

$″\phantom{\rule{.3em}{0ex}}\text{double prime}$
⠶⠶

$\perp \phantom{\rule{.3em}{0ex}}\text{perpendicular to}$
⠼⠤

$\parallel \phantom{\rule{.3em}{0ex}}\text{parallel}$
⠼⠇

## Explanation

In general, the spacing of symbols follows print. If the symbol is being used as a sign of operation or comparison, spacing should be consistent with signs of operation and comparison. If a symbol also has a grade 2 meaning, a grade 1 indicator may be needed. Additional miscellaneous symbols will be introduced in later lessons and a greater listing can be found in the Guidelines for Technical Materials, §11.
