Inequalities in LaTeX

In mathematics, an inequality is a relation which makes a non-equal comparison between two numbers or other mathematical expressions. It is used most often to compare two numbers on the number line by their size. There are several different notations used to represent different kinds of inequalities:

- The notation a < b means that a is less than b.
- The notation a > b means that a is greater than b.
