Instead of thinking of < and > as separate symbols think of them as just one A crocodile is greedy and will always eat the biggest number and so the wider part will always be facing towards the largest numbers. if there equal then it doent know which way to go it compromises and thus you get the = sign

Oh if your struggling with X And Y axis's I was taught a tip by my maths tutor ( she specialises in people with dyslexia and dyspraxia) X looks like a cross on it side if you say a cross really quickly it sounds like across therefore the x axis is the line that goes across a page.

I just remember that when you put a line before the smaller symbol, it makes a K, kinda like this [<, witch the word kleiner starts with. It's the dutch word for smaller, but that's probably just confussing if you're not dutch, sorry for that. It also works for me to remember that the smaller end is the smallests, and the bigger end is the biggest.
