$\Delta x$


$\Delta x$ is often used to mean change or difference in the value of the (real) variable $x$.

For example, for the definition of slope:

$\dfrac {\Delta y} {\Delta x} = \dfrac {y_2 - y_1} {x_2 - x_1} = \dfrac {\text{change in } y} {\text{change in } x}$


The $\LaTeX$ code for \(\Delta x\) is \Delta x .
