 Comparison operators are the usual mathematical operators you're familiar with. The result of their application is a ''​bool''​ (e.g. a < b is either ''​true''​ of ''​false''​). This is why they can be used in if-statement and loop conditions. This also means that their result can be assigned to ''​bool''​ variables, like this:\\ Comparison operators are the usual mathematical operators you're familiar with.
