BigInteger.GreaterThanOrEqual Operator (UInt64, BigInteger)


Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit unsigned integer is greater than or equal to a BigInteger value.

Namespace:   System.Numerics
Assembly:  System.Numerics (in System.Numerics.dll)

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


Type: System.UInt64

The first value to compare.

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 bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 2);
ulong number = UInt64.MaxValue;
if (number >= bigNumber) {
   // Do something

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.CompareTo(UInt64) method instead. Some languages can also call the GreaterThanOrEqual(UInt64, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

Dim bigNumber As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 2)
Dim number As ULong = UInt64.MaxValue
If BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(number, bigNumber) Then
   ' Do something
End If
