### [Solved] a over a cancels -- overstrike of a reverse virgule

Posted:

**Mon Oct 22, 2018 10:45 pm**When showing a derivation of a formula I want to know if there is a way to show that "this" cancels "that". For instance:

{ {a_0^2} over {a_0^2} } times r^2

but with a scaled reverse virgule (backward slash) through the two a_0^2 values.

It would be wonderful if it is something simple like:

{ cancels {a_0^2} over cancels {a_0^2} } times r^2

Any information appreciated

TIA
