## operator.eq() Function

operator.eq() function is a library function of operator module, it is used to perform "equal to operation" on two values and returns True if the first value is equal to the second value, False, otherwise.

Module:

```    import operator
```

Syntax:

```    operator.eq(x,y)
```

Parameter(s):

• x,y – values to be compared.

Return value:

The return type of this method is bool, it returns True if x is equal to y, False, otherwise.

Example 1:

```# Python operator.eq() Function Example

import operator

# integers
x = 10
y = 20

print("x:",x, ", y:",y)
print("operator.eq(x,y): ", operator.eq(x,y))
print("operator.eq(y,x): ", operator.eq(y,x))
print("operator.eq(x,x): ", operator.eq(x,x))
print("operator.eq(y,y): ", operator.eq(y,y))
print()

# strings
x = "Apple"
y = "Banana"

print("x:",x, ", y:",y)
print("operator.eq(x,y): ", operator.eq(x,y))
print("operator.eq(y,x): ", operator.eq(y,x))
print("operator.eq(x,x): ", operator.eq(x,x))
print("operator.eq(y,y): ", operator.eq(y,y))
print()

# printing the return type of the function
print("type((operator.eq(x,y)): ", type(operator.eq(x,y)))
```

Output:

```x: 10 , y: 20
operator.eq(x,y):  False
operator.eq(y,x):  False
operator.eq(x,x):  True
operator.eq(y,y):  True

x: Apple , y: Banana
operator.eq(x,y):  False
operator.eq(y,x):  False
operator.eq(x,x):  True
operator.eq(y,y):  True

type((operator.eq(x,y)):  <class 'bool'>
```

Example 2:

```# Python operator.eq() Function Example
import operator

# input two numbers
x = int(input("Enter first number : "))
y = int(input("Enter second number: "))

# printing the values
print("x:",x, ", y:",y)

# comparing
if operator.eq(x,y):
print(x, "is equal to", y)
else:
print(x, "is not equal to", y)
```

Output:

```RUN 1:
Enter first number : 10
Enter second number: 10
x: 10 , y: 10
10 is equal to 10

RUN 2:
Enter first number : 10
Enter second number: 20
x: 10 , y: 20
10 is not equal to 20
```
