## Inequalities

**Inequalities**are expressions that compare the sizes of two values. An inequality tells us whether something is bigger or smaller than something else. The inequality symbols are < (less than), > (greater than), ≤ (less than or equal to), and ≥ (greater than or equal to). Here’s how they look in action:

- 2 > 1 (“Two is greater than one”)
- 1 < 2 (“One is less than two”)
*x*≥ 1 (“*x*is greater than or equal to one”)*x*≤ 1 (“*x*is less than or equal to one”)
