Comparing numbers is important so we will know which item is greater or lesser. It is also helpful to know which number is equal to each other.

When we compare numbers, we use the following symbols:

 (less than)
> (greater than)
= (equal to)



In comparing numbers, one may notice that these could either be equal or unequal. Two numbers could be unequal numbers when one quantity is greater or lesser than the other. The symbol > is read as “greater than.”


We use the term “LESS THAN” when we compare unequal numbers. The symbol  <  is read as less than.


There are also situations when two numbers are of equal when compared. This means that both quantities are the same, or of the same value. In this case, we use the symbol “equal to.”
