**What are comparing numbers?**

In math, to compare means to examine the differences between numbers, quantities or values to decide if it is greater than, smaller than or equal to another quantity. Here, for instance, we are comparing numbers.

### How can I be greater than less than?

Greater than and less than symbols can be used to compare numbers and expressions. The greater than symbol is >. So, 9>7 is read as ‘9 is greater than 7’. The less than symbol is <.

### How do you put something into standard form?

The standard form for linear equations in two variables is Ax+By=C. For example, 2x+3y=5 is a linear equation in standard form. When an equation is given in this form, it’s pretty easy to find both intercepts (x and y). This form is also very useful when solving systems of two linear equations.

**How do you find the standard form of a rational number?**

In order to express it in standard form, we divide its numerator and denominator by the greatest common divisor of 9 and 24 is 3. Thus, the standard form of −924 is −38. The denominator of the rational number −14−35 is negative.

## What do A and B represent in standard form?

You are probably already familiar with the slope-intercept form of a line, y = mx + b. The standard form is just another way to write this equation, and is defined as Ax + By = C, where A, B, and C are real numbers, and A and B are both not zero (see note below about other requirements).
