# ‘AND’ vs ‘&&’ operators in PHP

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

The difference is the precedence when we compare AND with && operator. The precedence of AND operator is lower than the operator = when the evaluation is performed, therefore even if both the operators do the same work, the result is different.

## Example

Let us first see an example of the AND operator−

Live Demo

<?php
$val1 = 55;$val2 = 65;
if ($val1 == 55 and$val2 == 65)
echo "Result = True";
else
echo "Result = False";
?>

## Output

This will produce the following output−

Result = True

## Example

Let us now see an example of the && operator−

Live Demo

<?php
$val1 = 110;$val2 = 110;
if ($val1 == 110 &&$val2 == 110)
echo "Result = True";
else
echo "Result = False";
?>

## Output

This will produce the following output:

Result = True

## Example

Let us now see the difference in a single example −

Live Demo

<?php
$bool = TRUE and FALSE; echo ($bool ? 'true' : 'false'), "\n";
$bool = TRUE && FALSE; echo ($bool ? 'true' : 'false');
?>

## Output

This will produce the following output−

true
false
