Oh, you’re doing inequalities now?

If I calculated correctly, I can save up to nearly 55%.

Put another way, my discount is less than or equal to almost 55%.

We need a new symbol for this, don’t we? A wavy less-than sign, perhaps?-The equivalent of ≈?

  1. Do a Google Image Search for the word lesssim (three S’s).

  2. “Less than or equivalent to”? Huh. Well, there’s also the less popular symbol “lessapprox”.
