Order of operations/ Is the number an equation or inequality?

2a-3=2;4

9y-3>24;3

Ok, I think you're expected to evaluate the value on the right in the expression and see what the relation symbol should be. Substitute 4 for a in the first one and 3 for y in the second and tell us what you think the symbol in the middle should be.
