## Definition

A **strict inequality** is an **inequality** which does not permit the possibility of equality.

That is, an **inequality** of the form:

- $a < b$
- $a > b$

### Member of Inequality

Let $\RR$ be an inequality.

Let $a \mathrel \RR b$.

Then both $a$ and $b$ are referred to as **members** of the inequality $\RR$.
