# Comparison Operators

### Comparison Operators

In this lecture we will be learning about Comparison Operators in Python. These operators will allow us to compare variables and output a Boolean value (True or False).

If you have any sort of background in Math, these operators should be very straight forward.

First we’ll present a table of the comparison operators and then work through some examples:

#### Table of Comparison Operators

In the table below, a=3 and b=4.

OperatorDescriptionExample
==If the values of two operands are equal, then the condition becomes true.(a == b) is not true.
!=If values of two operands are not equal, then condition becomes true.(a != b) is true
>If the value of left operand is greater than the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.(a > b) is not true.
<If the value of left operand is less than the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.(a < b) is true.
>=If the value of left operand is greater than or equal to the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.(a >= b) is not true.
<=If the value of left operand is less than or equal to the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.(a <= b) is true.

Let’s now work in jupyter notebook through quick examples of each of these.
