Squared Symbol Easy to Make

When you wish to type "x squared", why type "x^2" when you can easily type "x"?

To type the "squared symbol", first make certain that your Num Lock is on.

Then hold down the "Alt" button while typing "253" on the numeric keypad.

Similarly, you can make the "cubed symbol" by using the "Alt" button with "252" on the numeric keypad. (x)

Multiplication symbol Alt 0215 As in 34=12

Or you can use the raised dot as a multiplication symbol as in 34=12
The raised dot can be made with Alt 0183.

Division symbol Alt 0247 As in 123=4
