# Scala Double <(x: Short) method

• Last Updated : 02 Nov, 2019

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

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

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

Example #1:

 `// Scala program to explain the working ``// of Double <(x: Short) method``  ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ ``  ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``      ` `        ``// Applying <(x: Short) function``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``12.00123``.toDouble).``<``(``15``:``Short)``          ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``      ` `    ``}``} `
Output:
```true
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program to explain the working ``// of Double <(x: Short) method``  ` `// Creating object``object` `GfG``{ ``  ` `    ``// Main method``    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])``    ``{``      ` `        ``// Applying <(x: Short) function``        ``val` `result ``=` `(``75.00123``.toDouble).``<``(``9``:``Short)``          ` `        ``// Displays output``        ``println(result)``      ` `    ``}``}`
Output:
```false
```
