# Inequality

Jump to: navigation, search

Inequality is when one object is:

• smaller than the other ($\ a means that a is smaller than b)
• bigger than the other ($\ a>b$ means that a is bigger than b)
• not smaller than the other ($a\geq b$ means that a is not smaller than b, that is, it is either bigger, or equal to b)
• not bigger than the other ($a\leq b$ means that a is not bigger than b, or it is smaller or equal to b)

Inequality is sometimes used to name a statement that one expression is smaller, greater, not smaller or not greater than the other.
