Logical operators: And, or, not

Logical operators: And, or, not: Learning the Python 3 Standard Library

Operators in Python take operands (also called inputs) and carry out some computation on them. The three logical operators (and, or, not) in Python, when applied to input(s), come up with a true or false value based on the definition of their operation and their input(s). And takes two operands and returns true if both of these inputted conditions result in true. Or also takes two operands and returns true if one or both of the operands result in true. Not only takes one operand and returns the opposite value of the condition that was inputted - hence, it will return true if the given condition is false or false if the given condition is true. These are usually used as part of if-statements or conditional loops and can be helpful if you need to know whether a given condition or series of conditions are true or false.
