# Less than or greater than numbers

## First method, how to remember.

Less than is <    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

15<20

This means 15 is less than 20.

Example 2

10>6

This means 10 is greater than 6.

Example 3

x>6

This means X is greater than 6.
