# Symbols:General/Prime

## Prime

- $x'$

The symbol $'$ is a general indicator of **another version of** or **another type of** where the specific version or type that is being described is to be defined.

The symbol $x'$ should technically be voiced **x prime**, although colloquially referred to as some variant of **x dash** or **x tick** or whatever can be devised by the ingenuity of the reader.

The $\LaTeX$ code for \(x'\) is `x'`

or `x^{\prime}`
