In the same way that a diagonal line through the equals symbol changes equals (=) to does not equal (â‰ ), a near-vertical line through the greater than symbol (>), 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 (â‰¤) 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

an electron has way less mass than a proton.

.2 is less than .625. because you would find this the same way you would find is 2 greater than or less than 6. 6 is greater than 2 so .2 is less than .625

the answer is 1.5 is greater than 1.05 because 1.05 is the same as 1.5 but when u add a 0 in the front, it makes the number less than the way it was before the more zeros u put in front the less the number will get.

The mathematical symbol for 'less than' is On the keyboard, is found over the period, or full stop.One way to remember which way the symbols go is this:BIGGER > smallersmaller < BIGGERor2 > 1 (2 is greater than 1)1 < 2 (1 is less than 2)

a filled in circle/dot means "greater than or eaqual to/less than or equal to" (depending on which way the arrow is pointing. an empty cirlce means only "greater than/less than". the greater than/less than symbol with the line under it will indicate the filled in circle. the normal greater than/less than symbol willl indicate the hollow cirlce

A negative number is less than a positive number. Think about it this way: a negative number is less than 0. A positive number is greater than 0. Therefore, a negative number must be less than a positive number.

No because 0.10 is less than 0.7 in the same way that 1/10 is less than 7/10

NO. 8,699 is much greater than 8935. There seems to be something wrong here - which may be due to the browser not allowing punctuation symbols. 8935 is greater than 8699, not the other way round.

The same way you can tell with integers.

the easy way of working this out is looking at the decimal point and the first number on the right of it will tell you. 7 is greater then 1 so 9.71 is greater

There are several so there is no way of knowing which ONE you mean.

length/breadth is greater than 2 oneway slab, less than 2 two way slab

One simple way to solve this is to actually do the multiplication. Then you can compare.

The symbol for greater than is >. If I were to say 9 is greater than 5, it would look like: 9 > 5. The other way to write it is 5 < 9, but this will translate to 5 is less than 9.

Yes, It does Sister because if u turn it a wrong way u may get the equation wrong

10.05 is less than 100.1 10.05 is nearly 10 and 100.1 is nearly 100 10 is WAY LESS than 100.

Yes, 29.07 is 0.03 less than 29.1. Think of it this way; 29.1 can be written as 29.10. It should then be obvious that 29.10 is greater than 29.07.

It depends on whether the number you start with is greater than or less than 1.

(z = 35 or z = 37) is one way.

A ½ is half way between 1 and 2. Obviously there are others, such as 1¾, and so on.

There is no way to answer without knowing what A and B are. There are 3 feet in a yard so you can work it out.

No. A decimal number is simply a way of representing a number in such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. A decimal representation does not require a decimal point. It can be greater than, equal to or less than 1.

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.

Yes. The sign for "is greater than" is > and means that the value on the left is greater than that on the right. X > 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 < 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 > A.
