# Comparing Whole Numbers

While comparing whole Numbers, one should know about the counting of numbers. The whole numbers can be easily compared when placed on a number line. To compare whole numbers, there are 4 comparison symbols used:

1. Equal to Sign(=): This symbol is used to when the whole numbers to be compared are equal. It denotes that the Whole Number to its left side is equal to the whole number to its right side.

e.g, 46 = 46

2. Not Equal Sign(≠): This symbol is used to when the whole numbers to be compared are not equal. It denotes that the whole number its left side is not equal to the whole number of its right side.
e.g, 63 36

3. Greater than sign(>): This symbol is used when a whole number is greater than the other whole number to be compared. The number placed at the left of this symbol is greater in value than the number on the right.
e.g, 78 > 16

4. Less than Sign(<): This symbol is used when a whole number is less than the other whole number to be compared. The number placed at the left of this symbol is less in value than the number on the right.
e.g, 27 < 84
