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 rightx > y

<

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

==

Equal to: True if both operands are equalx == y

!=

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

>=

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

<=

Less than or equal to: True if left operand is less than or equal to the rightx <= 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




a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a > b)

Output:

True

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

Syntax:

x < y

Example:

Python3




a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a < b)

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




a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a == b)

Output:

False

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

Syntax:

x != y

Example:

Python3




a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a != b)

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




a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a >= b)

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




a = 9
b = 5
  
# Output
print(a <= b)

Output:

False
