Clever. I initially thought of this 5 > 9, but there's not really a number there. 5 > x > 9 would be more appropriate I guess.

Wow! I never thought it to be so simple! I was thinking of all sorts of logarithms.

BTW, the sqrt symbol between doesn't work.

No, this would not actually work. It would translate to five times the square root of nine. Since the square root of nine is three, the value would then be fifteen, which is not less than nine.
