Used to say some quantity is less than four.

Some people believe "<4" is stronger than "<3". This is simply false - it is in fact the other way round. Clearly any number less than three must also be less than four whereas there are some numbers which are less than four but aren't less than three - this makes "<3" the stronger statement of the two.

3.9999<4, -6<4, 2<4, 0<4 are all correct statements, whereas 4<4, 5<4, 6.434<4 are all examples of false statements.
