import operator

firstNumber = int(input('Enter the first number : '))
secondNumber = int(input('Enter the second number : '))

if(operator.lt(firstNumber, secondNumber)):
    print('{} is less than {}'.format(firstNumber, secondNumber))
    print('{} is greater than {}'.format(firstNumber, secondNumber))
