The boy is standing beside a sign board, next to an amusement park ride. Can he be allowed to go on the ride? He has to be at least 1.4 m in height, or taller! Let's use the letter h to represent his height in metres, Then h is to be greater than or equal to 1.4

Notice h is on the left side (greater) and 1.4 is on the right side. Note h is allowed to be equal to 1.4 Here's a closer look at the symbol for  "greater than or equal to"  "Greater" on the left,  a line __ for "equal to" in the middle !
