I've found a way of adding strikeouts to a text.

Use this syntax

hashtag cancel (whatever math you have) hashtag

It'll look like this

$\cancel{2 + 2}$

Without the "#"s, it should look like this

cancel(2 + 2)

Other examples

$\text{2.05"cancel("m") * "1 something"/("1"cancel("m")) = "2.05 somethings}$

$2.05 x + \cancel{7} = 102 + \cancel{7}$

And so on...
