…In addition to mathematical functions,…Grasshopper can also evaluate conditional statements.…Conditional statements can be thought of as yes or no questions.…For example, is the temperature below freezing?…The conditionals are the starting points for branching logic in algorithms.…You might be familiar with the concept of if-then-else statements.…For example, if the temperature is below freezing, then put on a coat.…Or else, stay inside.…So let's look at a simple conditional statement that measures the value of…a number slider.…So, in our example file, we're using the Evaluate component and…we've attached an expression of x is greater than 5.…
And we're feeding that with a floating point number slider into the x…input of the Evaluate component.…And rather than making a numerical output, this conditional expression returns either…true or false since any given number will be either greater than five,…in which case Evaluate returns a true value.…Or a number will be less than or…equal to five, in which case Evaluate returns false.…
