# Math Help - inequality Notation

1. ## inequality Notation

Hi all,

I was wondering, is it considered in bad taste to have both an equality and an inequality in the same expression? Should I split them up? For example:

$\frac{x}{y}=c\times\frac{a}{b}<\frac{a}{b}$

Thanks

I think that it's just a bit informal and is usually fine.

Ok thanks
