## (Greater than or Equal)

Type:
Function
Description: Greater Than or Equal Function: Tests whether one object is greater than or equal to another
object.
The function returns a true test result (1) if the first argument is greater than or equal to the
second argument, or a false test result (0) otherwise.
If one object is a symbolic (an algebraic or a name), and the other is a number or symbolic or
unit object, returns a symbolic comparison expression that can be evaluated to return a test
result.
For real numbers and binary integers, "greater than or equal to" means numerically equal or
greater (2 is greater than or equal to 1). For real numbers, "greater than or equal to" also means
equally or less negative (–1 is greater than or equal to –2).
For strings, "greater than or equal to" means alphabetically equal or subsequent ("DEF" is
greater than or equal to "ABC"; "AAB" is greater than or equal to "AAA"; "AA" is greater than
or equal to "A"). In general, characters are ordered according to their character codes. This
means, for example, that "a" is greater than or equal to "B", since "B" is character code 66, and
"a" is character code 97.
For unit objects, the two objects must be dimensionally consistent and are converted to common
units for comparison. If you use simple temperature units, the calculator assumes the values
represent temperatures and not differences in temperatures. For compound temperature units,
the calculator assumes temperature units represent temperature differences. For more
information on using temperature units with arithmetic functions, refer to the entry for +.
