Comparison is one of the key concepts in mathematics as well as many other scenarios. To help determine the relationship between two variables or objects, a compare symbol is used. The most widely recognized compare symbol is the equal sign (=), which represents equality between two values or expressions. However, there are several other comparison symbols, including greater than (>), less than (<), greater than or equal to (≧), and less than/equal to (≦).

## History of the Comparison Symbol

The use of the compare symbol was first seen in ancient civilizations for performing mathematical operations. However, the equal sign (=) was first presented by Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde in the 16th century, and it became famous during the 17th century.

The comparison symbols for greater than (>), and less than (<), were developed by mathematician Thomas Harriot in the late 16th century. Apart from mathematical operations, these signs are an integral part of computer programming and data analysis.
