## Question

How are we supposed to evaluate if these are True or False?

## Answer

Any time we see a complicated looking expression, like `-(2 ** 3) < 2 ** 2 and 100 / 2 <= 20 - 10 * 2`

, it can be helpful to break it down into its parts like below.

```
# First, look at the left side of the AND
left_half = -(2 ** 3) < 2 ** 2
left_half = -(8) < 4 # True
# Now look at the right side of the AND
right_half = 100 / 2 <= 20 - 10 * 2
right_half = 50 <= 0 # False
# Finally, we can combine these halves around the AND
# And since we know the truth value of either side, we know the end result!
bool_result = left_half and right_half # False
```

You don’t need to write out new variables for each step, of course. And it’ll only get easier with practice. But mentally breaking down each side can definitely help!
