you wot i am not that clever my thinking does not exceed beyond the greater levels my apologies
9. but google got me here: The basic formula for the reorder point is to multiply the average daily usage rate for an inventory item by the lead time in days to replenish it
10. Not sure if srs but:

When I was younger, I imagined them as crocodiles - wherever the crocodile "faced" is the bigger side, ie

x>y: x is greater than y; x<y: y is greater than x
