Más Que/ Menos Que (more than/less than)

To say that something is MORE than another thing, you say, "Bla bla bla is MÁS (adjective goes here) QUE Zubba zubba zubba.

This is what it looks like in Spanish: A mí gato, soy más interestante que tú. ( To my cat, I am more interesting than you . )

To say that something is LESS than another thing, you say, Bla bla bla is MENOS (adjective goes here) QUE Zubba zubba zubba.

This is what it looks like in Spanish: Casi todos son menos interstante  que mí gato. (Almost everyone is less interesting than my cat.

It is likely that the phrases like less than and more than make you think of math. ( you know like the  < less than and > more than sign.)
 With this in mind I have made a simple math-like looking  formula that you can scribble anywhere so that you can remember  remember.
+ (adj.) K ( formula for Más (whatever) que  [ more than] )
- (adj.) K (  formula for menos (whatever) que or less than [less than] )
