Mammoth Memory

Less than or greater than numbers

First method, how to remember.

Less than is `<`    greater than is `>`

Less than is < and greater than is >

This looks like an L that's been bent in a breeze. It stands for LESS THAN an L. Therefore `>` (the other one) must mean greater than.


Example 1


This means 15 is less than 20.


Example 2


This means 10 is greater than 6.


Example 3


This means X is greater than 6.
