What are Conditionals?

Conditionals are if/else statements in computer programming.

if/else statements are important blocks of computer programming


if (condition is met) {



else { //else means condition is not met)



Our program is guaranteed to always go down one of the two paths: either the condition is true and it goes down the first path, or it's false and it goes down the second path.

How are true/falses evaluated?

Computer programs use boolean expressions to determine whether something is true/false.

Boolean expressions return true or false.

For example,

(10 > 9) // returns true

(8 > 10) // returns false
