Python - boolean values

0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you boolean values in Python.

Boolean type has only two possible values:

  1. True
  2. False

Practical examples

Example 1

When you evaluate any expression in Python, you get the boolean value as a result - True or False.

In this example, we compare two values to receive a boolean result.

print(2 > 1)    # True
print(2 == 1)   # False
print(2 < 1)    # False

You can check the variable type using type() method:

print(type(2 > 1))    # <class 'bool'>

Example 2

In this example, we use if statement to create a condition that returns the boolean value True or False. Based on the result, the program will print the appropriate sentence.

x = 1

if x > 0:
    print("x is a positive number")  # if True
    print("x is a negative number")  # if False


x is a positive number
