# Less than or greater than numbers

## Third method, how to remember. (Mammoth Memory's favourite)

Less than is <       greater than is >

Examples

1.  15<20

Therefore, 15<20 means 20 is larger than 15, which means 20 is greater than 15.

2.  10>6

Therefore, 10>6 means 10 is larger than 6, which means 10 is greater than 6.

3. x>6

Therefore, x>6 means x must be larger than 6, which means x is greater than 6.
