Hey Cindy; 
Let me see if I can give you a pointer so that you may remember about the 
greater than and less than. Always remember that Jaws (the shark) eats the 
larger number. So for example, 5 is less than 8 will look like this (if written 
out) 5<8. The "open mouth" of the shark is opened towards the larger number-8. 
Sharks like "large quantities of food. Now as far as the greater than sign. 10 
is greater than 2 will look like this 10>2. In this equation, the shark's mouth 
is opened up towards the 10 to "eat" it because sharks like large quantities of 
I hope this helps and I didn't further confuse you.
