Level: Elementary
Question:
which one of these arrows < , > points to the greater number? which arrows points to the smaller number.
Hi Nicole,
The "pointed end" points to the smaller number and the "wide end" to the larger number. That is
(small number) < (large number)
or
(large number) > (small number)
So
5 < 9
and
12 > 4
I hope this helps,
Penny
