# Less than or greater than numbers

## Second method, how to remember.

Less than is <       greater than is >

Think of this: < or > as arrow heads

Examples

1.  15<20

15 larr20

The arrow is pointing to the smaller amount. 15 is smaller than 20, or 15 is less than 20.

2.  10>6

10 rarr 6

The arrow is pointing to the smaller amount. 6 is smaller than 10, or 10 is greater than 6.

3. x>6

x rarr 6
The arrow is pointing to the smaller amount. 6 is smaller than x, or x is greater than 6.
