The exercise is stated thus: “Use a comparison operator to check if 56 is greater than or equal to 129”

I believe the answer is:

56 >= 129

But running this this, which gives an answer of FALSE, does not tick the exercise complete. So I looked up solution, which was given as:

56 != 129

I do not know what != means, but running this, which gives an answer of TRUE, also does not tick the exercise complete. Which means I am stuck here and cannot go onto the next exercise. Does anyone know where I went wrong?

Actually there are two questions
question no 1. is
Use a comparison operator to check if 56 is greater than or equal to 129. What should this expression evaluate to? Check by running your code!
Ans: 56 >= 129

and the question number 2 is
In a new line, use the right comparison operator to check if 56 is NOT equal to 129. What should this expression evaluate to? Check by running your code!
Ans: 56 != 129

!= this stands for NOT equal to

You need to attempt both the questions to complete the exercise.
