Conditionals & Control Flow
Compare Closely!

Let’s start with the simplest aspect of control flow: comparators. There are six:

Equal to (==)

>>> 2 == 2 True >>> 2 == 5 False

Not equal to (!=)

>>> 2 != 5 True >>> 2 != 2 False

Less than (<)

>>> 2 < 5 True >>> 5 < 2 False

Less than or equal to (<=)

>>> 2 <= 2 True >>> 5 <= 2 False

Greater than (>)

>>> 5 > 2 True >>> 2 > 5 False

Greater than or equal to (>=)

>>> 5 >= 5 True >>> 2 >= 5 False

Comparators check if a value is (or is not) equal to, greater than (or equal to), or less than (or equal to) another value.

Note that == compares whether two things are equal, and = assigns a value to a variable.

Instructions

1.

Set each variable to True or False depending on what you think the result will be. For example, 1 < 2 will be True, because one is less than two.

  • Set bool_one equal to the result of 17 < 328
  • Set bool_two equal to the result of 100 == (2 * 50)
  • Set bool_three equal to the result of 19 <= 19
  • Set bool_four equal to the result of -22 >= -18
  • Set bool_five equal to the result of 99 != (98 + 1)
