- This is used for comparison of similar parameters whether scalar or non-scalar. With scalars, the operators just output a 1 or 0 signifying true or false for the command statement being considered. When acting on matrices of the same size, the operators carry out an element-by-element comparison thereby creating an output matrix of 1’s and 0’s. The relational operators include:

Operator |
Description |

`<` |
Less than |

`<=` |
Less than or equal to |

`>` |
Greater than |

`>=` |
Greater than or equal to |

`==` |
Equal to |

`~=` |
Not equal to |

- Some sample code using relational operators is seen below:

**EXERCISE 5**

Using the matrices (shown below) carry out the following:

- Find the product of B and C (name the matrix D). Find the product of C and B (name the matrix E).
- Find the element-by-element product of the matrices B and C (name it F).
- Carry out a C greater than B comparison and name the resulting matrix G (do it by hand first)
- Carry out element-by-element exponentiation of B by G (name H).
- Compute the columnar product of the elements of H.

**MISCELLANEOUS EXERCISE**

Complete the sequences observed in matrix C to make a 4-by-6 matrix K (negative integers are allowed).

Convert M into every possible size it could have given the number of elements it possesses.
