Comparing Numbers and Amount
Ordering  Numbers
Symbols are used to show how the size of one
number compares to another. These symbols
are
< (less than),       > (greater
than),
           = (equals.)
example, since 2 is smaller than 6 and 6 is
larger than 2, we can write: 2 < 6, which says
the same as 6 > 2 and of course 6=6
<
Less than
Smaller than
Numbers have an order or arrangement. They
can be  arrange  from least to
greatest or
from
greatest to least.

Example: If we start with the numbers 10 and
12, the number 11 would come between
them, the number 13 would come after them
and the number 9 would come before both of
them.

The order may be
ascending (getting larger in
value
) or descending (becoming smaller in
value
).
