I have a document in which I need to insert a math formula. I inserted a math/formula object, and here's what I wrote (with sensitive information removed, of course):

{x}over{y}={20}over{94}=21%

I want it to look like this: Instead, it looks like this: I know that % is used in functions (an atrocious design choice for a MATH markup language, but that's not the point). But there has to be a way to write a single percent sign, right? They allow a perthousand sign (%perthousand), but not a

**%**? And I've tried using a \ and a / to mark a literal character, nothing.

I can't believe this is such a problem, and I can't believe there's nothing in the documentation to resolve this. How has this never come up? This has to be me, I'm sure of it, I'm the one unable to find the easy solution. Because nobody would make a whole text editing software in which you can add math formulas, but you can't use a percent sign in any of them.

I am begging the wizards of this board to help me, I am out of ideas.
