A quantity $a$ is said to be greater than $b$ if $a$ is larger than $b$, written $a>b$. If $a$ is greater than or Equal to $b$, the relationship is written $a\geq b$. If $a$ is Much Greater than $b$, this is written $a\gg
b$. Statements involving greater than and Less than symbols are called Inequalities.
