# If elseif else or ternary operator to compare numbers PHP?

PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

You can use any of them, but a more professional approach is using the ternary operator (?). Performance of both if-else and ternary operator is the same.

Let’s say we have the following two variable values −

$value1=10;$value2=0;

We need to compare the above 2 variable values.

## Example

Live Demo

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>
<?php
$value1=10;$value2=0;
$data=550000;$output=$value1 ?$value2 : $value2 ? :$data;
echo "The value is=",\$output;
?>
</body>
</html>

This will produce the following output

## Output

The value is=550000
