If you are working on equations in mathematics, you will find an inequality. Because it is part of the equation. Inequality exists as a reversal of the equation. When the equation is the same value in comparison, inequality is present to compare the two different values. In the most general inequality, there are 2 ways to find out the difference in values in numbers. That is greater than and less than.
Greater than and less than are two different symbols that exist in inequality. These two symbols have opposite meanings, so it will be easier to understand if you understand the value of the numbers used in inequality. The greater than and less than will consist of 2 numbers that will be compared or 1 number that you need to compare depending on the greater than or less than order. If in case 1 number, you only need to solve it by writing numbers with values greater than or less than 1 number.
Everyone likes tricks when getting things done. With tricks, it will certainly make things easier. In less than and greater than also has a trick. This is useful when you remember symbols of less than and greater than. Because the two symbols are similar, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish them, especially for children who have just learned them at school. In a symbol of the greater than, if you make a slight rotation to the left, the symbol will form a capital letter L. With this, L can be a letter that makes you remember that L means Less has less value than. Whereas in the greater than symbol, if you add a line to the left it will form a letter b. B means Better so it will remind you of greater than.
On the number line, zero is a number in the middle. The zero position is neutral. When you do greater than and less than with zero number, you will be introduced to positive numbers and negative numbers. Positive numbers are numbers greater than zero while negative numbers are numbers smaller than zero. The number is the same as a positive number, it's just that you will add a negative line symbol to the front/ left side of the negative number.
