You haven’t learned about statements that check on and respond to true/false (known as boolean) values yet, but since we are talking about arithmetic symbols we wanted to give you a primer with the symbols used for these checks.

You can check if two values are equal `==` (notice there are double `=`s to check for equivalency rather than the single symbol used for assignment), not equal `!=`, greater than `>`, greater than or equal `>=`, less than `<`, and less than or equal `<=`.

As an example, if you wanted to perform a segment of code if `a` had the same value as `b`, you could write it as:

``````int a = 3;
int b = 3;
if (a == b) {
a++;
}``````

Notice in this code that at the end, `a` would be `4`.

### Instructions

1.

The code block is ready for your new knowledge to fix this bad code. Insert the missing symbol(s) in the `if` statement so that the logic inside the check runs and the output is printed.

Note: You will learn more about `if` statements in a future lesson, for now you want the statement inside of it to be a true statement. So you want to use logical symbol(s) such that the comparison between `x` and `y` is a true statement.
