Key points

  • Boolean is a simple data type that is stored as either True or False


A Boolean data type can only have the value true or the value false.

The name of the data types recalls George Boole, a mathematician.

Boolean data is generated from conditions. When two values are compared (e.g. 4>5) then the result is true or false.
