The **greater-than sign** is a mathematical symbol that denotes an inequality between two values. The widely adopted form of two equal-length strokes connecting in an acute angle at the right, **>**, has been found in documents dated as far back as the 1560s. In mathematical writing, the greater-than sign is typically placed between two values being compared and signifies that the first number is greater than the second number. Examples of typical usage include *1.5 > 1* and *1 > −2*. Since the development of computer programming languages, the greater-than sign and the less-than sign have been repurposed for a range of uses and operations. wikipedia.org
