Bicycle tire pumps (let all air out)
Pliers (why do they get stuck in this position - look left?)

Greater Than and Less Than Symbols

Subject: Greater/Less Than
I am assisting my Middle School Son with his Math Homework.
His teacher claims that '> 25' represents greater than 25. I was
taught that it meant less than. The number that the angle points to
was always less than and the wide angle was greater than... perhaps
his teacher erred?
Can you help?
