Relational operators are used to compare two expressions.

The relational operation returns a Boolean value as result that can be either true or false.

= vs ==. Are they different or same?

= and == are not same.

 

Assignment operator (=)

It is an assignment operator. Using = we assign value to a variable.

For example, i=9;

Here we are assigning value 9 to variable i.

 

Equality operator (==)

It is an equality operator. Using ==, we compare if the two different expressions are equal to each other or not.

If they are equal, boolean value true is returned else false is returned.

For example,

9==9 → true

7==9 → false
