What is beyond infinity? What do you think infinity is?Can anyone tell me if there is a mathematical symbol for beyond? I’m thinking possibly “>” could work? I’m trying to say the phrase “to infinity and beyond”
When comparing numerical values, phrases like 'greater than' and 'more than' and 'bigger than' mean the same thing.… I thought [that > means] “more than”
Here is another. I have had students who completely rebelled at this: \(\displaystyle x\ge 8\) is read "\(\displaystyle x\) is greater than or equal to eight.When comparing numerical values, the phrases 'greater than' and 'more than' mean the same thing.
My age is greater than your age.
My age is more than your age.
My_age > Your_age
In mathematics, we read the > symbol as, "greater than".
True, true. (Whatever works is successful communication.)… Vocabulary does change.
@Otis, it seems totally counter-intuitive but 'more than or equal to' & 'less than or equal to' are more confusing than 'at least' or 'at most'.True, true. (Whatever works is successful communication.)
Just out of curiosity, I googled What is the symbol for "more than" in math? and > is what I mostly saw. On the other hand, I googled What does the > symbol mean in math? and perused 13 results; 12 say "greater than" and one says "bigger than".
