# Greek alphabet

**Next tutorial: Vectors in Computer Science**

In mathematics different values are represented with letters of Latin and Greek alphabets. As you read this text, I suppose, you don't have problems reading Latin letters. But we encounter Greek letters less. Mostly at math classes. As for me, I always have problems with reading Greek letters. And I think, I'm not alone. So, knowing how to read Greek letters right will allow us to read different mathematical formulas correctly.

## Greek letters

Β β - beta

Γ γ - gamma

Δ δ - delta

Ε ε - epsilon

Ζ ζ - zeta

Η η - eta

Θ θ - theta

Ι ι - iota

Κ κ - kappa

Also, you need to know that if Latin and Greek letters coincides, Latin letter is used. For example: A, B, O, o, X, P...

You don't need to learn these letters. Just know, that you can find here how to read unknown letter if you met it in some formula in later tutorials.
