Python Comparison Operators

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

These operators compare the values on either sides of them and decide the relation among them. They are also called Relational operators.

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then −

Sr.NoOperator & DescriptionExample
1==
If the values of two operands are equal, then the condition becomes true.
(a == b) is not true.
2!=
If values of two operands are not equal, then condition becomes true.
(a != b) is true.
3<>
If values of two operands are not equal, then condition becomes true.
(a <> b) is true. This is similar to != operator.
4>
If the value of left operand is greater than the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.
(a > b) is not true.
5<
If the value of left operand is less than the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.
(a < b) is true.
6>=
If the value of left operand is greater than or equal to the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.
(a >= b) is not true.
7<=
If the value of left operand is less than or equal to the value of right operand, then condition becomes true.
(a <= b) is true.

Example

Assume variable a holds 10 and variable b holds 20, then −

 Live Demo

#!/usr/bin/python
a = 21
b = 10
c = 0
if ( a == b ):
   print "Line 1 - a is equal to b"
else:
  print "Line 1 - a is not equal to b"
if ( a != b ):
print "Line 2 - a is not equal to b"
else:
print "Line 2 - a is equal to b"
if ( a <> b ):
print "Line 3 - a is not equal to b"
else:
print "Line 3 - a is equal to b"
if ( a < b ):
print "Line 4 - a is less than b"
else:
print "Line 4 - a is not less than b"
if ( a > b ):
print "Line 5 - a is greater than b"
else:
print "Line 5 - a is not greater than b"
a = 5;
b = 20;
if ( a <= b ):
print "Line 6 - a is either less than or equal to b"
else:
print "Line 6 - a is neither less than nor equal to b"
if ( b >= a ):
print "Line 7 - b is either greater than or equal to b"
else:
print "Line 7 - b is neither greater than nor equal to b"

Output

When you execute the above program it produces the following result −

Line 1 - a is not equal to b
Line 2 - a is not equal to b
Line 3 - a is not equal to b
Line 4 - a is not less than b
Line 5 - a is greater than b
Line 6 - a is either less than or equal to b
Line 7 - b is either greater than or equal to b
