Conditionals & Control Flow

Compare Closely!

Let’s start with the simplest aspect of control flow: **comparators**. There are six:

**Equal to** (`==`

)

>>> 2 == 2 True >>> 2 == 5 False

**Not equal to** (`!=`

)

>>> 2 != 5 True >>> 2 != 2 False

**Less than** (`<`

)

>>> 2 < 5 True >>> 5 < 2 False

**Less than or equal to** (`<=`

)

>>> 2 <= 2 True >>> 5 <= 2 False

**Greater than** (`>`

)

>>> 5 > 2 True >>> 2 > 5 False

**Greater than or equal to** (`>=`

)

>>> 5 >= 5 True >>> 2 >= 5 False

Comparators check if a value is (or is not) equal to, greater than (or equal to), or less than (or equal to) another value.

Note that `==`

compares whether two things are equal, and `=`

assigns a value to a variable.

### Instructions

**1.**

Set each variable to `True`

or `False`

depending on what you think the result will be. For example, `1 < 2`

will be `True`

, because one is less than two.

- Set
`bool_one`

equal to the result of`17 < 328`

- Set
`bool_two`

equal to the result of`100 == (2 * 50)`

- Set
`bool_three`

equal to the result of`19 <= 19`

- Set
`bool_four`

equal to the result of`-22 >= -18`

- Set
`bool_five`

equal to the result of`99 != (98 + 1)`
