Why not take a quick moment to learn about the simple concept of Greater Than and Less Than Worksheets? Knowing the difference between these two different numerical values can be vital to your business’s success, so get ready to dig in!
Less Than – LESS
Less Than is a number that is equal to or less than another number. An example of less than this is “9.5”. In the past this was the most common, but nowadays it is considered “better” to use “7.5”.
Less is used with numbers that are both smaller and larger than the other. There are many people who will not know how to write a smaller number, so you can use “2.75” instead. This will not create confusion, because no one will know what the number represents.
So how do you use this? Here are some ways to do it:
(This works for a monthly cash flow statement.) It can be used to show how much the owner paid to a mortgage company in interest. However, it can also be used to show how much the owner paid per month in interest.
Another example of using Less Than Worksheet is when a creditor gives the owner of a loan an account balance because of late payment. The owner will be shown how much of his debt the creditor has charged him, but he can also determine what percentage of his debt has been charged to him and compare it to the other amount.
Greater Than – GREATER
Greater Than is a number that is greater than another number. An example of greater than this is “18.35”. In the past this was the most common, but nowadays it is considered “better” to use “21”.
Greater is used with numbers that are the same and different. An example of greater than this is “9.5”. In the past this was the most common, but nowadays it is considered “better” to use “21”.
Lesser and greater are the most common. You can use “7.5” to represent something that is less than a specific number. “7.0” can be used to represent something that is the same as a specific number.
While you might think that people are less likely to write a lower number, there are a lot of data that indicate that the public is more likely to use numbers that are a multiple of their most common. In other words, if someone sees a number that is less than his or her common, they are more likely to write the number than someone who sees a number that is the same as their common.
Finally, you can use these two-digit number notation when there is a discrepancy between two-digit numbers and higher numbers. Two-digit number notation is used in about 60% of the cases.
