# Lesson 2 ๐ Conditionals

## โณ Datatypes Review

So far weโve seen data in 3 forms:

Datatype Example Explanation
Numbers `yourAverage = 3.8` Integers or floats
Strings `myName = "Ben"` Anything inside โquotesโ
Booleans `isItSaturday = False` true or false

## โ Conditionals

Conditional (n) : a statement that is true IF something else is true โIfโฆthenโฆโ statements

In programming:
If this functions, do _____
**Else**, do __
___

In life: If you do your homework, then you will earn a high grade.
Else, you will earn a low grade.

### What do conditionals require in order to function?

``````if #something true:
# run this code
else:
#run this code
``````

Booleans!

``````"""
What will print after each conditional is run?
"""
# Number 1:
if 5<2:
print "I am right"
else:
print "I am wrong"

# Number 2:
if 5>2:
print "I am right"
else:
print "I am wrong"
``````
