It looks like you’re getting the hang of this! Let’s explore another set of useful operators available in Java known as *relational operators*.

Relational operators compare data types that have a defined ordering, like numbers (since numbers are either smaller or larger than other numbers).

Relational operators will always return a boolean value of `true`

or `false`

.

Here are a few relational operators:

`<`

: less than.`<=`

: less than or equal to.`>`

: greater than.`>=`

: greater than or equal to.

A relational operator is placed between the two *operands* (the terms that you want to compare using the relational operator). The result of a relational operation is printed out in the following statement:

System.out.println(5 < 7);

The example above will print out `true`

because the statement “`5`

is less than `7`

“ is true.

Use one of the relational operators above to compare any two integers.
