**Python Basics Tutorial 10 – Python Comparison Operators**

### Notes from the video ‘**Python Course Singapore | Learn Python Programming | Tutorial 10 – Python Comparison Operators’:**

**Comparison operators** compare two things to see what’s the relationship between them.

**equal to sign (==)**

In the previous videos, we learnt about the **equal to sign (==)**.** **The equal to sign is a type of comparison operator. We use it to compare whether a variable is equal to a string, or a variable is equal to a number or perhaps another variable.

**If the two values you are comparing is equal then the condition is true**.

For example, **5 == 5** is **true** while **4 == 5** is **not true**.

Now, let’s look at other operators:

**not-equal to sign (!=)**

The **not-equal sign(!=)** is the opposite of the equal to sign and it’s represented by an exclaimation mark followed by an equal sign.

For the not equal sign, **if the two values you are comparing is not equal then the condition is true**.

For example **5 != 5** is **not true** while **4 != 5** is **true**.

**greater than sign (>)**

The next operator is **greater than sign**. It’s represented by the same greater than symbol we use in Math.

**If the left value is greater than the value on the right then the condition is true.**

For example,** 5 > 4** is **true** while **4 > 5** is **not true**.

**less than sign (<)**

The next operator is **less than sign**. It’s represented by the same less than symbol we use in Math. **If the left value is smaller than the value on the right then the condition is true.**

For example, **5 < 4** is **not true** while** 4 < 5** is **true**.

**greater than or equal to (>=)**

The next operator is **greater than or equal to**. It’s represented by the greater than symbol and the equal sign.

**If the left value is greater than or equal to the value on the right, then the condition is true.**

For example, **5 >= 4** is **true** while **4 >= 5** is **not true**.

**less than or equal to (<=)**

The last operator we are looking at is **less than or equal to**. It’s represented by the lesser than symbol followed by the equal sign.

**If the left value is less than or equal to the value on the right, then the condition is true.**

For example, **5 <= 4** is **not true** while **4 <= 5** is true.
