# How do you write an "X"?

I never considered anyone would not use No. 7 .

Thinking about how I write it has messed me up, but I think I write a cursive x in the manner of No. 7, and that I print an x like No. 8.

Definitely 7 for me.

My letter that I write strangely is lowercase d. I do it in just one stroke like a backwards 6 that stands up straight.

Duh, no mention of the fact that most people write X the way they were taught to write it .

From 5 to 8 I may write any, depending on where I rest the pen

This is a thing?

Definitely 7. But in Taiwan Iâ€™ve learned that people can write seemingly innocent symbols in very strange ways.

Iâ€™m just trying to figure out what â€śthe wrong wayâ€ť is in the context of toilet paper.

The right way

Yes, apparently itâ€™s a big thing and I first encountered the toilet paper controversy some 30 years ago. It was never a thing in the household I grew up in, though.

As for writing an X, I do 7. Iâ€™ve never heard of writing an X with upstrokes of any form.

In math, or should I say maths, Brits are taught to write the variable x as a combination of a backward-c and a c, whereas in the US, we write it with cross strokes.

Definitely 7

Because otherwise it looks the same as the symbol for multiplication or cross product. Americans are doing it wrong, as usual.

I was taught to still use the number 7 method, but the first stroke is a bit like a tilted tilde.

Edit: Now that I think about it, itâ€™s probably just a cursive x.

8

Definitely 8 for me.

non cursive, 8.

There are even more ways one might write an â€śXâ€ť. For example, > < etc. And none of the examples given were cursive.

I have seen surveys about the direction of butt-wiping. (Turns out there are directions Iâ€™d never considered.)
