# 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.
