GreaterEqual (>=, ≥)

x>=y or xy
yields True if x is determined to be greater than or equal to y.
yields True if the x_i form a non-increasing sequence.
  • xy can be entered as x Esc >= Esc y or x\[GreaterEqual]y.
  • GreaterEqual does some simplification when its arguments are not numbers.
  • For exact numeric quantities, GreaterEqual internally uses numerical approximations to establish numerical ordering. This process can be affected by the setting of the global variable $MaxExtraPrecision.
  • xy, entered as x Esc >/ Esc y or x\[GreaterSlantEqual]y, can be used on input as an alternative to xy.
