For example, we know that 7 is greater than 3. So, the symbol is: 7>3. We know that 2 is less than 5. So the symbol would be: 2<5.

What does the no greater than symbol look like?

In the same way that a diagonal line through the equals symbol changes equals (=) to does not equal (&acirc;&permil;&nbsp;), a near-vertical line through the greater than symbol (&gt;), changes it to not greater than. Unfortunately I cannot find it in my symbols set. One alternative, of course, is to change the equation around: x not greater than y is the same as x less than or equal to (&acirc;&permil;&curren;) y. When inverting the equation in this fashion, you do need to remember to add = if it was not there and remove it if it was. ie not (greater than) is the same as less than or equal to not (greater than or equal to) is the same as less than not (less than) is the same as greater than or equal to not (less than or equal to) is the same as greater than

In that it uses an inequality sign (less then, greater than, less-than-or-equal, greater-than-or-equal) instead of an equality sign. When solving, special care must be taken - when multiplying or dividing both sides of an inequality by a negative number, the direction of the inequality sign changes.

Does greater than always face one direction?

Yes. The sign for "is greater than" is &gt; and means that the value on the left is greater than that on the right. X &gt; Y means that X is greater than Y The opposite direction is always read as "is less than" and is also read from left to right. A &lt; B means A is less than B .... although that means that B is greater than A, it is not read, or used, that way. If you want to indicate that B is greater than A you need to put it as B &gt; A.
