# What are the logical operators "and", "or", and "not" in Python?

harris910

A logical operator is a symbol or word that connects two or more expressions so that the value of the produced expression created is solely determined by the value of the original expressions and the operator’s meaning.

The following are the logical operators available in Python:

• and
• or
• not

### Description

The table below explains each of the logical operators in Python.

 Operator Symbol Operator Name Example Description and Logical And Operand-A and Operand-B It returns True, when both the operand-A and operand-B is True, otherwise it returns False. or Logical Or Operand-A or Operand-B It returns True, when either the operand-A or operand-B is True, otherwise it returns False. not Logical Not not Operand-A It returns the operand's logical state in reverse.

### Figure

The following figure is the visual representation of the logical operators in Python.

### Code

The code below illustrates how to use these logical operators in Python.

A=10
B=20
C=30

#And Operator
#Both True
print "The value of (A<B and B<C): ",(A<B and B<C);
#First operand: True		Second Operand: False
print "The value of (A<B and B>C): ",(A<B and B>C);
#Both False
print "The value of (A>B and B>C): ",(A>B and B<C);

#Or Operator
#Both True
print "The value of (A<B or B<C): ",(A<B or B<C);
#First operand: True		Second Operand: False
print "The value of (A<B or B>C): ",(A<B or B>C);
#Both False
print "The value of (A>B or B>C): ",(A>B or B>C);

#Not operator
D=True
#reverse of true logical state
print "The value of not(D): ",not(D);
