Hi Ruby,

Math uses symbols in the place of words. For example, = stands for equals.

Here, we need to use the symbol <. This stands for |ess than.

So, if we want to say in math that "A number B is less than 12", we would write: B < 12.

If we wanted to say in math that "A number B is more than 12," then we would write: B > 12.

I hope this helps you! :)
