[an error occurred while processing this directive] Equal

  • lhs == rhs returns True if lhs and rhs are identical.
  • lhs == rhs is used to represent a symbolic equation, to be manipulated using functions like SolveEquation .
  • lhs == rhs returns False if lhs and rhs are determined to be unequal by comparisons between numbers or other raw data, such as strings.
  • Approximate numbers are considered equal if they differ in at most their last eight binary digits (roughly their last two decimal digits).
  • 2 == 2. gives .
  • == == gives True if all the are equal.
  • Equal[ e ] gives True .
  • lhs == rhs can be input as lhs \[Equal] rhs or lhs == rhs .
  • See also: Unequal .


    Examples

    Using InstantCalculators

    Here are the InstantCalculators for the Equal function. Enter the parameters for your calculation and click Calculate to see the result.

    In[1]:=

    Out[1]=

    In[2]:=

    Out[2]=

    In[3]:=

    Out[3]=

    Entering Commands Directly

    You can paste a template for this command via the Text Input button on the Equal Function Controller.

    This uses the shorthand form of Equal .

    In[5]:=

    Out[5]=

    Equal will return unevaluated if it cannot determine that the right-hand side and left-hand side are identical.

    In[6]:=

    Out[7]=
