As defined by the laws of math, 3 > 5. Feel free to try and change my mind.
Um actually, 5 is bigger than 3, So 5 is bigger than 3 Sources: My seventh grade math teacher, Ms. Sax 

" 5 is bigger than 3, So 5 is bigger than 3"
5>3. This is correct. However, 3 is a positive number. A minus sign before a number indicates it is a negative number. By math law, Negative numbers are numbers below zero. This means positive numbers are greater than negative numbers. Therefore, If we plug in these numbers, 3>5, Because 3 is positive and 5 is negative. I look forward to hearing your response.
The 3 is a negative number disguised as a positive number 

Lets go with what she says
"The 3 is a negative number disguised as a positive number" So what you are saying is that 3 is in reality a negative number, But it is disguised(pretending) to be a positive number. Even if this were true, Negative 3 is still greater than negative 5. This contradicts your own point. Conclusion: Con concedes the debate by agreeing with me.
The 5 is also secretly a positive number disguised as a negative number So 3<(5) because 3 is actually 3 and 5 is actually 5 3<5 

So now you backtrack on your other point, And make up a fantasy about the numbers? The numbers are not disguised. I meant them as they are. Even if what you said is true, The sign flips when change a positive to a negative. So your wrong.
I'm definitely wrong but people will probably vote me anyway as a joke

If we simplify this expression by removing the 10 from each side, We are left with 5 > 3
If you subtract 5 from 10 you actually gain value and are left with 15, This suggests that 5 has a greater value than 3 when subtracting, Thus510 > 310
