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
