## Definition:

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)

## Summary:

GREATER THAN

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.”

LESS THAN

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

EQUAL SIGN

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.”

## Examples:

1,435 elephants >256 zebras
886 koalas < 986 kangaroos
3,457 walruses = 3,457 monkeys
