# More Boolean Expressions in Comparisons

In this lesson, we will look at other logical operators that can be used to write more complex Boolean expressions.

## We'll cover the following

As we mentioned earlier, an expression such as `age >= 20`

, that we use as the condition within an `if`

statement is called a Boolean expression. These simple expressions use the relational operators given earlier in this table to compare two operands—variables, constants, or other expressions—that have primitive data types. Each expression has a value of true or false.

## Logical operators

We can combine Boolean expressions into more complex Boolean expressions by using the **logical operators** `&&`

, `||`

, and `!`

. These operators are named **and**, **or**, and **not**, respectively, and behave as follows:

Note: The logical operators`&&`

,`||`

, and`!`

The “and” operator: The expression

boolean-expression1`&&`

boolean-expression2is true if both Boolean expressions are true; otherwise, it is false.

The “or” operator: The expression

boolean-expression1`||`

boolean-expression2is true if either or both Boolean expressions are true; otherwise, it is false.

The “not” operator: The expression

`!`

boolean-expressionis true if the Boolean expression is false; otherwise, it is false.
