If the "comparison symbol" is the equal sign, it is called an "equation". If the symbol is less than, greater than, less-than-or-equal, or greater-than-or-equal, it's called an "inequality".

If there is an equal sign, it is called an equation; if there is a less-than, a less-than-or-equal, a greater-than, or a greater-than-or-equal sign, an inequality; if there is none of these, an expression.

In an equation, what is to the left of the equals sign equals what is to the right. In an inequality, the left side is either less than, greater than, less than or equal to, or greater than or equal to the right side.

An inequality is similar to an equation, except that instead of an equal sign, it uses one of the following signs: * less-than * less-than-or-equal * greater-than * greater-than-or-equal

It is an inequality.

Same as it is.

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

Less than Less than or equal to Equal to Greater than Greater than or equal to

An inequality is similar to an equation, in that it compares two expressions. But in an equality, instead of an equal sign, you would usually use one out of the following inequality symbols:* less than * less than or equal * greater than * greater than or equal

The line is dotted when the inequality is a strict inequality, ie it is either "less than" (<) or "greater than" (>). If there is an equality in the inequality, ie "less than or equal to" (≤), "greater than or equal to" (≥) or "equal to" (=) then the line is drawn as a solid line.

> greater than < less than = equal to
