Comparison operators are used for comparing values. Python provides operators for less than, greater than, less than or equal, greater than or equal, equal and not equal.
- [Instructor] These are Python's comparison operators,…and there's a complete set of them:…less than, greater than, less than or equal,…greater than or equal, equal, and not equal.…They compare the value of two operands.…Let's take a look at how this works.…Here in Komodo I've opened a working copy of comparison.py…from chapter five of the exercise files,…and you notice that it's pretty simple.…I have two variables, and I have an if else.…Then there's a comparison operator in the if right there.…
So in this case it's using…the less than comparison operator.…So the condition will be true if the left-hand operand…is less than the right-hand operand.…So in this case, it is.…X is less than Y, 42 is less than 73.…It should print comparison is true.…And when I save and run this you see…it says comparison is true.…Now if I change this operator to a greater than operator…and save and run, you see that the comparison is now false.…
There's also less than or equal to,…so if I use less than or equal to…and save and run, it is true.…
