Step 1
Lets consider some examples
2 = 2
2 = 3 - 1 and so on.
That deals with the equals bit
2 is less than 3 2 < 3
The gap between the two lines of < on the right is much greater than the left. The greater gap indicates greater value. So reading left to right 2 < 3 . Stating the obvious; the 2 is less than the 3 or 3 is greater than 2 3 > 2
Step 2
Putting them together
Look at the order of the wording " 3 less than or equal to x"
Writing the numbers and symbols in the same order as the wording we have 3 < = x . However, the correct format for this is 3 x .
Step 3
Footnote
a less than b a < b
a less than or equal to b a b
a greater than b a > b
a greater than or equal to b a b
a not equal to b a b
