# Scala Set equals() method with example

The equals() method is utilized to check whether the two sets have the same elements or not.

Method Definition: def equals(that: Any): Boolean

Return Type: It returns true if the elements of both the sets are same else it returns false.

Example #1:

 `// Scala program of equals() ` `// method ` ` `  `// Creating object  ` `object` `GfG  ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method  ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ` `    ``{  ` `     `  `        ``// Creating sets  ` `        ``val` `s``1` `=` `Set(``"geeks"``, ``"for"``, ``"cs"``)  ` `        ``val` `s``2` `=` `Set(``"cs"``, ``"for"``, ``"geeks"``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Applying equals method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `s``1``.equals(s``2``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Displays output  ` `        ``println(result)  ` `     `  `    ``}  ` `}  `

Output:

```true
```

Example #2:

 `// Scala program of equals() ` `// method ` ` `  `// Creating object  ` `object` `GfG  ` `{  ` ` `  `    ``// Main method  ` `    ``def` `main(args``:``Array[String])  ` `    ``{  ` `     `  `        ``// Creating sets  ` `        ``val` `s``1` `=` `Set(``11``, ``10``, ``2019``)  ` `        ``val` `s``2` `=` `Set(``9``, ``10``, ``2018``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Applying equals method  ` `        ``val` `result ``=` `s``1``.equals(s``2``)  ` `         `  `        ``// Displays output  ` `        ``println(result)  ` `     `  `    ``}  ` `}  `

Output:

```false
```
