# 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
