This post is collection of questions related to Greater than , Less than and Equal to sign in mathematics. All these signs are used for number comparison and help us to identify which number is greater than the other given number.

Before we move on to solving the below set of questions, let us try to understand the concept first.

**Greater than and Less than symbols in Math**

**What is Greater than sign?**

When one number is greater than the other number it is represented by greater than sign.

The symbol for greater than is ” **>** “

Example

We know that 15 is greater than number 10.

This statement can be represented as **15 > 10**

**What is Less than sign?**

When one number is smaller than the other number, it is represented by less than sign.

The symbol for less than sign is ” **<** “

Example

We know that 20 is less than 25

The above statement can be written as **20 < 25**

**What is Equal to sign?**

When two numbers are equal than we use equal to sign.

The symbol for equal to sign is ” **= **“

Example

we know that 15 is equal to number 15

This statement can be expressed as **15 = 15**

Understand that if you want to use the concept in Math Exercise, you should have good understanding of the numbers. So before solving the below questions, i would strongly urge to understand the concept of number system and counting and then move on to the below math activity
