It appears to be working for fbox but only for text.

I have learnt by experience. Earlier I used to submit immediately after writing. I had ignored "preview". the result was when came to edit the spacing etc were not visible. Once I started preview. I could edit easily.

How to write a degree symbol in LaTeX without copying the symbol in this forum's banner or making o, O, 0, or \circ as an exponent?

I use the ^ {\circ} There is a \degree command in the gensymb package but it is not used here.

Are LaTeX codes not uniform?

You mean they are different? Sometimes, they write additional packages to add commands but like all languages it is basically the same everywhere.

uses the ^{\circ} command

You can produce

and if you want to produce

then write

There are ways to produce number lines or similar pretty pictures in LaTeX, but they are quite complicated.

If you require LaTeX for pi, it is
