Do I spell out "7+" as in "The odds ratio for a suicide attempt in adulthood ranged from 2.3 in those with one early life trauma to 29.8 in those with 7+ adverse childhood experiences" to "more than seven" or "seven or more"?

  • Well, "7+" is already ambiguous, as it's unclear whether it means "seven or more" or "more than seven". – Hot Licks Sep 9 '15 at 2:30

  • @choster Ok, I will. – Aktuali iz Dolan Sep 9 '15 at 3:25

"n+" (as opposed to "> n") is usually meant as "n or more" since "n" is counted in the desired cardinal set. "n plus" may be used in colloquial speech as well.
