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>=b. In the Wolfram Language, this is denoted Greater[a, b], or a > b.

If a is much greater than b, this is written a>>b. Statements involving greater than and less than symbols are called inequalities.
