# What are Comparison Operators in Python with Syntax and Examples

In this tutorial 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.

Operator | Description | |
---|---|---|

== | If the values of two operands are equal, then the condition becomes true. | |

!= | If values of two operands are not equal, then the condition becomes true. | |

> | If the value of left operand is greater than the value of right operand, then the condition becomes true. | |

< | If the value of left operand is less than the value of right operand, then the condition becomes true. | |

>= | If the value of left operand is greater than or equal to the value of right operand, then the condition becomes true. | |

<= | If the value of left operand is less than or equal to the value of right operand, then the condition becomes true. |

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

# Equal

```
2 == 2
True
1 == 0
False
```

**Note**that == is a comparison operator, while = is an assignment operator.

# Not Equal

```
2 != 1
True
2 != 2
False
```

# Greater Than

```
2 > 1
True
2 >1
False
```

# Less Than

```
2 < 4
True
2 < 1
False
```

# Greater Than or Equal to

```
2 >= 2
True
2 >= 1
True
```

# Less than or Equal to

```
2 <= 2
True
2 <= 4
True
```
