Below are the explanation for comparing number terms-
(a) Greater than:
The symbolic representation of the term greater than in math is ">". The term greater then is used to find the biggest number in the given number.
Find the greatest number in the following number
46 and 79
Here 79 is the greatest number.
Symbol representation of greatest number 79 > 46
(b) Less than:
The symbolic representation of the term less than in math is "<". The term less then is used to find the smallest number in the given number.
Obtain the smallest number and write down the symbolic representation
16 and 3
Here 3 is the smallest number.
Symbol representation of smallest number
The symbolic representation of the term equal in math is "=". The term equal is used to represent the same property.
100 is equal to 100
100 is the same as 100
Greater than or equal to:
The symbolic representation of the term greater than or equal to in math is "≥" . The term greater then is used to denote the limitation.
