### Assignment & Comparison Practice

**Goal:** In the Assignment, Comparison, and Equality Operators lesson, we learned:

- The difference between
`=`

and`===`

- The assignment operators for each of the mathematical functions:
`+=`

,`-=`

,`*=`

,`/=`

- Comparison operators, including
`<`

,`>`

,`<=`

, and`>=`

- Equality operators, including
`===`

and`!==`

Take time to practice using these operators by completing the exercises listed below.

- What is the difference between a comparison operator and an assignment operator?
- What is a boolean? What does it represent?
- How is the
`+=`

operator different from the`+`

operator?

Practice assigning and comparing:

- Set two variables equal to two different numbers. Use a comparison operator to compare these two variables.
- Change one of their values by using the
`+=`

,`-=`

,`*=`

, or`/=`

operator. - Then, compare their values again.

If you are working with a pair, switch who's driving and observing and continue with this practice:

- Try out the
`<=`

and`>=`

operators by comparing two numbers. - Try out using
`===`

equality operator by comparing two strings. - Next, use the
`!==`

equality operator on two strings or numbers to get a`true`

and`false`

return value.
