 After a couple of searching on Google, I cannot find the way to type the degree symbol in inline LaTeX syntax.

 MathJax probably doesn't support \degree. You can use this to fake it: $^{\circ}$. I don't know LaTeX so well so there might be other ways.

 @BirkhoffLee You can probably use the ° key on your keyboard if you have it. See the answer here: http://meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/5020/mathjax-basic-tutorial-and-quick-reference#answer-19678

 gensymb \usepackage{gensymb} \begin{document} The right angle is 90\si{\degree}. \end{document}  textcomp \usepackage{textcomp} \begin{document} The round angle is 360\si{\textdegree}. \end{document}  siunitx \usepackage{siunitx} \begin{document} Degree symbol: 45\si{\degree}. \end{document}  circ [^{\circ}](url) You can do it in 4 different ways above.

 No, @erickzind, here the question is about the MathJax syntax used by Quiver, it's not a pure LaTeX syntax. You cannot use \usepackage with MathJax.
