Answer:

Yes

Step-by-step explanation:

At Bookstore X more than 1,000 books were sold.

say 1000+x , where x, a positive number is the number of books more sold.

At Bookstore Y, fewer than 1,000 books were sold.

Say 1000-y, where y a positive number is the number of fewer books sold at Store Y.

1000+x>1000-y

For positive x and y

Therefore, the number of books sold at Bookstore X were more than those sold at Bookstore Y.
