# 3.1.4. Logical Expressions¶

## 3.1.4.1. Syntax of Logical Expressions¶

• Can defined constants equal to True and False of the type bool

• These constants can be combined to form a Logical Expression via the Logical Operators and, or and not

## 3.1.4.2. Semantics of Logical Expressions¶

• a and b is True only if both expressions are True

• a or b is True if at least one expression is True

• not a is True if the single expression is False

Looked at differently:

True and True is True
True and False is False
False and True is False
False and False is False

True or True is True
True or False is True
False or True is True
False or False is False

not True is False
not False is True

a = True
b = False
c = True
d = False

print a
print b

print "==="

print not a
print a and b
print a or b

print (a and b) or (c and (not d))

True
