I am quite confident that I understand the signs of inequalities, which I understand as;

> greater than

< less than

The part I am not quite sure about is if when reading inequalities you are permitted to read then both ways, i.e. from the left and from the right?

So in this example;

4 < -5

- 5 is less than 4, and

4 is greater than - 5

in this example would it be right to read it from right to left?

Thanks
