BigInteger.GreaterThanOrEqual Operator (BigInteger, BigInteger)

Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is greater than or equal to another BigInteger value.

Namespace:  System.Numerics
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.Numerics (in System.Runtime.Numerics.dll)
  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

public static bool operator >=(
	BigInteger left,
	BigInteger right
)

Parameters

left
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The first value to compare.

right
Type: System.Numerics.BigInteger

The second value to compare.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if left is greater than right; otherwise, false.

The GreaterThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the greater than or equal to operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

BigInteger number1 = 945834723;
BigInteger number2 = 345145625;
BigInteger number3 = 945834724;
BigInteger number4 = 945834723;
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number2);             // Displays True
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number3);             // Displays False
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number4);             // Displays True

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.Compare method instead. Some languages can also call the GreaterThanOrEqual(BigInteger, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim numberA As BigInteger = 945834723
Dim numberB As BigInteger = 345145625
Dim numberC As BigInteger = 945834724 
Dim numberD As BigInteger = 945834723
Console.WriteLine( _
        BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(numberA, numberB))    ' Displays True
Console.WriteLine( _
        BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(numberA, numberC))    ' Displays False
Console.WriteLine( _
        BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(numberA, numberD))    ' Displays True
