Also (I remember this from elementary school), imagine it's a mouth (alligator or Pacman) and it wants to eat the bigger number.

This is funny, I was just thinking about this the other night, and how my teacher told me the alligator thing in grade school, but I think its much nicer the way I do it. You dont have to remember which way the aligator wants to face... I would get confused and think, why doesnt the alligator not eat the small/young prey.. it seems to be easier.

< looks like an L. The alligator one is a good one, too. The predator (which is the mouth) seeks to eat the bigger prey.
