ok see this
in mathematics if two quantities are unequal then we use > or < sign
now < is a sign for " less than " and > is a sign for "greater than"
now there are two kids whose ages are 10 and 12 years respectively
therefore you say 10 < 12 means 10 is less than 12 got it

- anonymous

yea

- anonymous

ok but the things changes when we talk about negative numbers
in general we say 6 is greater than 5 means 6>5 but
when negative numbers come then -6 is less than -5 means -5 is grater than -6
now in mathematics we write it as -6<-5
thus you saw that
6>5 means 6 is greater than 5
-6<-5 means -6 is less than -5
you got it or still confused

i got lost...

my 12 years old brother interpret it as follow. he says
if you have 10 dollars in your pocket and i have 20 dollars then i m better than you.
means 20>10
but if you have borrowed 10 dollars from someone and i have borrowed 20 dollars then you are better than me
means -20<-10
