  • Equal To Operator (==)
  • It is binary operator which operates on two operands.
  • == compares value on left and right side expressions- return 1 if they are equal otherwise return will be 0;
  • Example:

  2. x=10;
  3. y=10;
  4. if(x==y)
  5. printf(“True”);
  6. else
  7. printf(“False”);
  • When expression x == y evaluates, it will return 1 and “TRUE” will be printed.
