**Inequality**

An *inequality* is like an equation that uses symbols for
"less than"(<) and "greater than"(>) where an equation uses a symbol for "is equal to" (=).

So where the equation:
X = Y + 5

says that "X is equal to Y plus 5",
X < Y + 5

says that "X is less than Y plus 5", and
X > Y + 5

says that "X is greater than Y plus 5".

Now I have a problem for you:

Substitute the ? in the following expression for the correct
inequality symbol:
5 ? 4
