Comparison operators can be used outside
of `if`

constructs. See an example:

```
console.log(1 == 1); // shows true
console.log(1 == 2); // shows false
```

You can compare variables:

```
let a = 1;
let b = 2;
console.log(a == b);
```

You can display the result not immediately to the console, but assign it to some variable:

```
let a = 1;
let b = 2;
let result = a == b;
console.log(result);
```

Let the following variables be given:

```
let a = 2 * (3 - 1);
let b = 6 - 2;
```

Using the operator `==`

find out
if the values of these variables are
equal or not.

Let the following variables be given:

```
let a = 5 * (7 - 4);
let b = 1 + 2 + 7;
```

Use the operator `>`

to find out
if the variable `a`

is greater
than `b`

.

Let the following variables be given:

```
let a = 2 ** 4;
let b = 4 ** 2;
```

Using the operator `!=`

, find out
if the values of these variables
are different or not.
