I don’t understand on your example:

test_1 = false

# test_2 = -4 <= -4

test_2 = true

Why test 1 has to be false, and test 2 true.
In both examples both integers are identical.
From what’s been explained either != or <= mean that A is not the same as B. So why can’t test 1 be true and test 2 false?

If I told you that 77 is not the same as 77, that would be a false statement. `!=` means not equal.
`<=` means less than or equal to, so if I tell you, -4 is less than or equal to -4, that is a true statement. Hope this helps!

I started realising shortly after my post, but yes it makes a lot of sense. Hopefully this post will help other people in the future also thanks!
