# Scala Double <(x: Char) method

Last Updated : 02 Nov, 2019

In Scala, Double is a 64-bit floating point number, which is equivalent to Javaâ€™s double primitive type. The <(x: Char) method is utilized to return true if this value is less than x, false otherwise.

Method Definition – def <(x: Char): Boolean

Returns – Returns true if this value is less than x, false otherwise.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program to explain the working  ` `// of Double <(x: Char) method ` `  `  `// Creating object ` `object` `GfG ` `{  ` `  `  `    ``// Main method ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String]) ` `    ``{ ` `      `  `        ``// Applying <(x: Char) function ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `(``12.00123``.toDouble).``<``(``'A'``:``Char) ` `          `  `        ``// Displays output ` `        ``println(result) ` `      `  `    ``} ` `}  `

Output:

```true
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program to explain the working  ` `// of Double <(x: Char) method ` `  `  `// Creating object ` `object` `GfG ` `{  ` `  `  `    ``// Main method ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String]) ` `    ``{ ` `      `  `        ``// Applying <(x: Char) function ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `(``75.00133``.toDouble).``<``(``'G'``:``Char) ` `          `  `        ``// Displays output ` `        ``println(result) ` `      `  `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```false
```
