### 3.9. Relational Operators: <, <=, >, >=

Given that a and b represent numeric expressions, the relational (also called comparison) operators are defined as shown in Table 3.6.

 a < b a less than b? a <= b a less than or equal to b? a > b a greater than b? a >= b a greater than or equal to b?

All relational operators are binary operators, and their operands are numeric expressions. Binary numeric promotion is applied to the operands of these operators. The evaluation results in a boolean value. Relational operators have precedence lower than arithmetic operators, but higher than that of the assignment operators.

` double hours = 45.5; boolean overtime = hours >= 35.0; // true. boolean order = 'A' < 'a'; // true. Binary numeric ...`
