# Make me true!
bool_one = 3 < 5  # We already did this one for you!

# Make me false!
bool_two = 2 != 2 

# Make me true!
bool_three = 4+1> 1

# Make me false!
bool_four = 2>2

# Make me true!
bool_five = 4>= 1 

why wont this pass , im confused


i would use spaces around the comparison operators for readability:

bool_four = 2 > 2

other then that, your code runs fine:


Why does it give an error when I put 2**2 == 2**(-2) but not for 2**2 == (-2)**2 ?


what do you define as error? I get a boolean value for both this math operations
