# 1. Introduction

Comparison operators are essential in programming as they allow us to compare values and make decisions based on those comparisons. In Go, as in many programming languages, these operators are fundamental for controlling the flow of the program. This blog post will discuss Go's comparison operators through various examples.

## Definition

Comparison operators in Go are used to compare two values. The basic comparison operators are == (equal to), != (not equal to), < (less than), <= (less than or equal to), > (greater than), and >= (greater than or equal to). These operators return a Boolean value, either true or false, depending on the result of the comparison.

# 2. Program Steps

1. Compare two integers for equality.

2. Compare two integers to determine if they are not equal.

3. Check if one integer is less than the other.

4. Check if one integer is less than or equal to the other.

5. Check if one integer is greater than the other.

6. Check if one integer is greater than or equal to the other.

# 3. Code Program

package main

import "fmt"

func main() {
// Declare some integers for comparison
a := 10
b := 20

// Step 1: Compare for equality
equal := a == b

// Step 2: Compare for inequality
notEqual := a != b

// Step 3: Less than
lessThan := a < b

// Step 4: Less than or equal to
lessThanOrEqual := a <= b

// Step 5: Greater than
greaterThan := a > b

// Step 6: Greater than or equal to
greaterThanOrEqual := a >= b

// Printing the results
fmt.Printf("%d == %d: %t\n", a, b, equal)
fmt.Printf("%d != %d: %t\n", a, b, notEqual)
fmt.Printf("%d < %d: %t\n", a, b, lessThan)
fmt.Printf("%d <= %d: %t\n", a, b, lessThanOrEqual)
fmt.Printf("%d > %d: %t\n", a, b, greaterThan)
fmt.Printf("%d >= %d: %t\n", a, b, greaterThanOrEqual)
}

10 == 20: false
10 != 20: true
10 < 20: true
10 <= 20: true
10 > 20: false
10 >= 20: false

### Explanation:

1. package main - This is the package declaration for the Go program.

2. import "fmt" - This line imports the format package for output formatting.

3. Variables a and b are initialized with 10 and 20 respectively for comparison.

4. The variable equal tests whether a is equal to b using the == operator.

5. The variable notEqual tests whether a is not equal to b using the != operator.

6. lessThan checks if a is less than b with the < operator.

7. lessThanOrEqual checks if a is less than or equal to b with the <= operator.

8. greaterThan checks if a is greater than b with the > operator.

9. greaterThanOrEqual checks if a is greater than or equal to b with the >= operator.

10. The fmt.Printf statements output the results of the comparison operations, indicating whether each statement is true or false.

11. The output shows the result of each comparison operation between a and b, demonstrating the use of Go's comparison operators.
