## What's Over Under Mean

- Over and under A crude sexually pleasuring move that you can get cheap where the said prostitute doesn't actually have to touch your genatalia I got the best over and under in Melbourne and i didn't get.
- Under definition, beneath and covered by: under a table; under a tree.
- What does 'over under' mean as a sports betting term? 'Over Under' refers to the betting line on the total number of a certain statistic — usually points or goals scored — in a sporting event, with.

*As well as the familiar equals sign (=) it is also very useful to show if something is not equal to (≠) greater than (>) or less than (<)*

Over/under bets. Even though Totals and Over/Under may be used interchangeably for scoring, there’s another way to make Over/Under bets. An Over/Under bet can also be a proposition bet where there’s a wager made on a specific occurrence. A boxing match is a good example since scoring isn’t quite the same as the major sports.

**These are the important signs to know**:

= | When two values are equal | example: 2+2 = 4 |

≠ | When two values are definitely | example: 2+2 ≠ 9 |

< | When one value is smaller than another | example: 3 < 5 |

> | When one value is bigger than another | example: 9 > 6 |

## Less Than and Greater Than

The 'less than' sign and the 'greater than' sign look like a 'V' on its side, don't they?

To remember which way around the '<' and '>' signs go, just remember:

- BIG > small
- small < BIG

Greater Than Symbol: **BIG > small**

### Example:

10 > 5

*'10 is greater than 5'*

Or the other way around:

5 < 10

*'5 is less than 10'*

Do you see how the symbol 'points at' the smaller value?

## .. Or Equal To ..

Sometimes we know a value is smaller, but **may also be equal to**!

### Example, a jug can hold up to 4 cups of water.

So how much water is in it?

It could be 4 cups or it could be less than 4 cups: So until we measure it, all we can say is 'less than **or equal to**' 4 cups.

To show this, we add an extra line at the bottom of the 'less than' or 'greater than' symbol like this:

The 'less than | ≤ |

The 'greater than | ≥ |

## All The Symbols

Here is a summary of all the symbols:

Words | |
---|---|

= | 1 + 1 = 2 |

not equal to | |

> | 5 > 2 |

less than | |

≥ | marbles ≥ 1 |

less than or equal to |

## Why Use Them?

Because there are things we **do not know exactly ..**

**say**.

*something*aboutSo we have ways of saying what we **do** know (which may be useful!)

### Example: John had 10 marbles, but lost some. How many has he now?

Answer: He must have **less than** 10:

Marbles **<** 10

If John still has some marbles we can also say he has **greater than zero** marbles:

Marbles **>** 0

But if we thought John **could have** lost **all** his marbles we would say

## Define Over Under

Marbles **≥** 0

In other words, the number of marbles is greater than **or equal to** zero.

## Combining

We can sometimes say two (or more) things on the one line:

### Example: Becky starts with $10, buys something and says 'I got change, too'. How much did she spend?

Answer: Something greater than $0 and less than $10 (but NOT $0 or $10):

'What Becky Spends' > $0

'What Becky Spends' < $10

This can be written down in just one line:

**$0 < 'What Becky Spends' < $10**

That says that $0 is less than 'What Becky Spends' (in other words 'What Becky Spends' is greater than $0) and what Becky Spends is also less than $10.

**Notice that '>' was flipped over to '<' when we put it before what Becky spends.** Always make sure the

**small end points to the small value**.

## Changing Sides

We saw in that previous example that when we change sides we flipped the symbol as well.

This: | is the same as this: | What Does Over 2.5 Mean Just make sure the small end points to the small value! Here is another example using '≥' and '≤': ## Example: Becky has $10 and she is going shopping. How much will she |
