The ternary operator is an operator that takes three arguments.
Ternary Operator Python
- The first argument is a comparison argument.
- The second is the result of a true comparison.
- The third is the result of a false comparison.
a if condition else b
Conditional expressions are generally used to set values according to conditions. Also called the ternary operator. The ternary operator is shortened way of writing an if-else statement.
Python Conditional Operator
true if <condition> else false
condition: This is a boolean condition that evaluates to either
true: The value returned by the ternary operator if the condition evaluates to
false: The value returned by the ternary operator if the condition evaluates to
The ternary operator differs from a standard
elifstructure because it is not a control flow structure and behaves more like other operators such as
!=in the Python language.
for val in range(1, 11): is_even = "Even" if val % 2 == 0 else "Odd" print(val, is_even, sep=' = ')
1 = Odd 2 = Even 3 = Odd 4 = Even 5 = Odd 6 = Even 7 = Odd 8 = Even 9 = Odd 10 = Even
rank = 222 num = 0.1 if rank > 111 else 0 print("rank:", rank, " num:", num)
# rank: 222 num: 0.1
- The Python ternary operator is a more efficient way of performing simple if statements.
- The ternary operator evaluates a condition, then returns a specific value depending on whether that condition is equal to
