Function larger #

Test whether value x is larger than y.

The function returns true when x is larger than y and the relative difference between x and y is larger than the configured epsilon. The function cannot be used to compare values smaller than approximately 2.22e-16.

For matrices, the function is evaluated element wise.

Syntax #

math.larger(x, y)

Parameters #

Parameter Type Description
x number | BigNumber | Fraction | boolean | Unit | string | Array | Matrix First value to compare
y number | BigNumber | Fraction | boolean | Unit | string | Array | Matrix Second value to compare

Returns #

Type Description
boolean | Array | Matrix Returns true when the x is larger than y, else returns false
