This tutorial will explain the syntax and use of the logical AND operator in Python. The logical AND operator returns
True if the value of both operands is
True, and returns
False if any value of the two operands is
False. The logical AND operator is used in cases where we only want to perform an action or a task if all the conditions or operands are
In most programming languages, i.e. C, C++, Java, and C#, etc.
&& is used as a logical AND operator. Unlike other programming languages, the
and keyword is used as the logical AND operator in Python.
Examples of Logical and Operator
and in Python
Now let’s look into the use with example codes of the logical and operator
and in Python.
Suppose we have a program that performs actions based on the two variables
b; we check values of
b using the
and keyword, as shown in the below example code.
a = 12 b = 2 if a > 0 and b > 0: print('a and b are greater than 0')
a and b are greater than 0
Another use of the
and keyword can be where we want to check the functions’ outputs and then perform an action or task based on boolean values returned by the values.
The below example code demonstrates the use of the logical AND operator
and in Python to check the boolean values returned by the functions.
func1 = True func2 = False if func1 and func2: print('Both function executed successfully') else: print("Task failed")
We can also check the values of more than two operands, i.e. if all the conditions are
True using multiple logical AND operators
and in Python as shown in the example code below:
cond1 = True cond2 = True cond3 = False cond4 = True if cond1 and cond2 and cond3 and cond4: print("All conditions are true!") else: print("All conditions are not satisfied")
All conditions are not satisfied
