## What are Comparison Operators in Python?

Comparison operators are used to comparing different values in python. Comparison operators evaluate to a boolean value,i.e,True (or) False.

Following are the comparison operators in python:

- ==
- !=
- >
- <
- >=
- <=

## == Operator

```
x = 5
y = 3
print(x == y)
#False
# returns False because 5 is not equal to 3
```

## != Operator

```
x = 5
y = 3
print(x != y)
#True
# returns True because 5 is not equal to 3
```

## > Operator

```
x = 5
y = 3
print(x > y)
#True
# returns True because 5 is greater than 3
```

## < Operator

```
x = 5
y = 3
print(x < y)
#False
# returns False because 5 is not less than 3
```

## >= Operator

```
x = 5
y = 3
print(x >= y)
#True
# returns True because five is greater, or equal, to 3
```

## <= Operator

```
x = 5
y = 3
print(x <= y)
#False
# returns False because 5 is neither less than or equal to 3
```
