In the previous set of episodes, you saw how you can work with Boolean values, and how you could use comparison operators such as less than, greater than, equal to and not equal to, to compare values to each other.

val passingGrade = 50
val studentGrade = 50
val chrisGrade = 49
val samGrade = 99
val studentPassed = studentGrade >= passingGrade
val chrisPassed = chrisGrade >= passingGrade
val samPassed = samGrade >= passingGrade
println(chrisPassed == false)
val catName = "Jaspurr"
// val catName = "Jaspurr"
// println(!catName)
// AND Operator
// &&
val bothPassed = chrisPassed && samPassed

Demo 2

The OR operator is two vertical lines, or pipes like this:

// OR Operator
// ||
val eitherPassed = chrisPassed || samPassed
val anyonePassed = chrisPassed || samPassed || studentPassed
val everyonePassed = chrisPassed && samPassed && studentPassed
val meritAwardGrade = 90
val samHasPerfectAttendance = true
val samIsMeritStudent = samHasPerfectAttendance && samGrade > meritAwardGrade
