Relational Operators in Python
  • Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

Relational operators are used for comparing the values. It either returns True or False according to the condition. These operators are also known as Comparison Operators.

Operator

Description

Syntax

>

Greater than: True if the left operand is greater than the right x > y

<

Less than: True if the left operand is less than the right x < y

==



Equal to: True if both operands are equal x == y

!=

Not equal to – True if operands are not equal x != y

>=

Greater than or equal to: True if left operand is greater than or equal to the right x >= y

<=

Less than or equal to: True if left operand is less than or equal to the right x <= y

Now Let’s see each Relational Operator one by one.

1) Greater than: This operator returns True if the left operand is greater than the right operand.

Syntax:

x > y

Example:

Python3

filter_none

close

play_arrow

brightness_4
code

a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a > b)

chevron_right


Output:



True

2) Less than: This operator returns True if the left operand is less than the right operand.

Syntax:

x < y

Example:

Python3

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a < b)

chevron_right


Output:

False

3) Equal to: This operator returns True if both the operands are equal i.e. if both the left and the right operand are equal to each other.

Example:

Python3

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a == b)

chevron_right


Output:

False

4) Not equal to: This operator returns True if both the operands are not equal.

Syntax:

x != y

Example:



Python3

filter_none

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a != b)

chevron_right


Output:

True

5) Greater than or equal to: This operator returns True if the left operand is greater than or equal to the right operand.

Syntax:

x >= y

Example:

Python3

filter_none

brightness_4
code

a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a >= b)

chevron_right


Output:

True

6) Less than or equal to: This operator returns True if the left operand is less than or equal to the right operand.

Syntax: 

x <= y

Example:

Python3

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a <= b)

chevron_right


Output:

False
