Relational Operators in LaTeX

Relational Operator are used for comparison of two values to understand the type of relationship a pair of number shares. For example, less than, greater than, equal to etc.

For eg != means not equal to but in maths we write it as.
So let’s see, the LaTeX code of Relational Operators one by one.
