# How to Compare Numbers in Python?

In Python, you can compare numbers using the standard comparison operators. Here’s an overview of the comparison operators available in Python:

• Equal to: `==`
• Not equal to: `!=`
• Greater than: `>`
• Less than: `<`
• Greater than or equal to: `>=`
• Less than or equal to: `<=`

You can use these operators to compare numbers and obtain a boolean result (`True` or `False`). Here are some examples:

``````x = 5
y = 10

print(x == y)  # False
print(x != y)  # True
print(x > y)   # False
print(x < y)   # True
print(x >= y)  # False
print(x <= y)  # True``````

In this example, we compare the values of `x` and `y` using different comparison operators. The result of each comparison is printed, indicating whether the condition is `True` or `False`.

You can also compare floating-point numbers in Python. However, keep in mind that due to the nature of floating-point arithmetic, direct equality comparisons (`==`) may lead to unexpected results due to rounding errors. To compare floating-point numbers, you can use the approach mentioned earlier, which involves defining a tolerance or delta value to account for small differences.

Additionally, Python provides the `math.isclose()` function in the `math` module for comparing floating-point numbers with a tolerance. This function allows you to specify relative and absolute tolerances for the comparison.

``````import math

a = 0.1 + 0.1 + 0.1
b = 0.3

print(math.isclose(a, b))  # True``````

In this example, the `math.isclose()` function is used to compare the values of `a` and `b` with default tolerances.

Remember to choose the appropriate comparison operator based on your specific requirements, and handle floating-point comparisons with care to account for potential rounding errors.
