How to add Plus and minus symbol in Microsoft word ( Special symbol + _ how to write in microsoft word)

If we have to write 45 plus minus 3 , we have to use + symbol with - below it. I was searching for it and came across two ways to make it:

1) Microsoft word-> Insert-> Symbol -> Select "±"

2) Another way Write +, select it and underline it using ctrl+u like this ->+

Both ways are proper but second way has more clarity and both symbols are not joined so looks better..

eg. 56 ± 5

     56 + 5

You decide which one you want to use.

    1. Thanks Mary D Lou. Yes it is the third way to add the same symbol.

      The Third way :

      3) It should be entered from the Number section with "Numlock" key on or in laptops, Function (Fn) key should be used with 0177

      a) Hold ALT and type 0177 with numlock key on

      b) Hold ALT, fn key and type 0177, once you release you will see this symbol appear :-)
      It will look like this "±"

  2. The easiest way is to hold the Alt key while typing the following numbers on the right-hand number pad. Release the Alt key and the following symbols will appear:

    224 α
    225 ß
    226 Γ
    227 π
    228 Σ
    229 σ
    230 µ

    233 Θ
    234 Ω
    235 δ
    236 ∞
    237 φ
    238 ε
    239 ∩
