    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

    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

    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
