How would you say does not equal?


if hi == hi:

print "hi"

elif hi (does not equal) bye:

print "no hi"

Is there something equivalent to == that means "not equal"?

Yes, there a “not equal” operator in Python which is denoted by !=, if you want to compare object identity, you can use the keyword is and its negation is not.

Below is your code with the != operator:-

answer = 'hi'

if answer == 'hi':


elif answer != 'hi':

  print("no hi")


To know more about this you can have a look at the following video tutorial:-
