**Inequality** is when one object is:

- smaller than the other ([math]\ a\lt b[/math] means that
*a*is smaller than*b*) - bigger than the other ([math]\ a\gt b[/math] means that
*a*is bigger than*b*) - not smaller than the other ([math]a\geq b[/math] means that
*a*is not smaller than*b*, that is, it is either bigger, or equal to*b*) - not bigger than the other ([math]a\leq b[/math] means that
*a*is not bigger than*b*, or it is smaller or equal to*b*)

**Inequality** is sometimes used to name a statement that one expression is smaller, greater, not smaller or not greater than the other.
