How to Compare Numbers?
In mathematics, understanding different types of numbers and comparing them is crucial. There are three are three ways that we can compare different numbers, and these include less, more, and equal.
Less than is a way of telling that a number is of a lower value in comparison to another value. It is written as "<."
**Small number < Big Number** - More or greater than is a way of telling that a number is of greater or higher value in comparison to another number. It is written as ">"."
**Big Number > Small Number** - The small end of less-than-or-greater-than sign points towards the smaller number while the bigger endpoints towards the bigger number.
Equal to same is a way of telling that two numbers are of the same value, and we use the equals-to sign to represent the information "=." These worksheets and lessons help students learn how compare single integers up to the number ten.
