 # Greater than and less than operators in JavaScript

To check which value is greater and which is less, the operators greater than `>`, greater than or equal to `>=`, less than `<`, less than or equal to `<=` are used.

Let's study their work on a practical example. Suppose we have the variable `test` with some value:

`let test = 1;`

Let's check if the value of this variable is greater than zero or not:

```let test = 1; if (test > 0) { console.log('+++'); // it will work } else { console.log('---'); }```

Now let's change the value of the variable to negative:

```let test = -1; if (test > 0) { console.log('+++'); } else { console.log('---'); // it will work }```

Now let the value of the variable be equal to `0`. In this case, we will get into the `else` block, since our condition says that the variable `test` must be strictly greater than zero:

```let test = 0; if (test > 0) { console.log('+++'); } else { console.log('---'); // it will work }```

Let's change the condition to greater than or equal to:

```let test = 0; if (test >= 0) { console.log('+++'); // it will work } else { console.log('---'); }```

And now to less than:

```let test = 0; if (test < 0) { console.log('+++'); } else { console.log('---'); // it will work }```

And now to less than or equal to:

```let test = 0; if (test <= 0) { console.log('+++'); // it will work } else { console.log('---'); }```

Check if the variable `test` is greater than `10`.

Check if the variable `test` is less than `10`.

Check if the variable `test` is greater than or equal to `10`.

Check if the variable `test` is less than or equal to `10`.
