[python] Can someone explain how if statements with multiple conditions work?

xolyon

Basically I have been working on a piece of code for example

while x > 0 or y < 100: print(something) print(y,x)

And the output would be something like this 190 , 0

Which is really annoying as it's only following one condition , I tried this with if statements and I got the same thing.

Can explain these multiple Condition concepts to me?

The OR boolean operator returns true if either of the conditions is correct.
For example if x=2 and y=190 then your function would return true because although y is not less than 100, x is greater than 0.
If you want both x to be greater than 0 and y less than 100 for the condition to be true, try using an AND logical operator (x > 0 and y < 100).

yes I understand logic operations but if Y is greater than 100 it should end but it doesn't not until x reaches its condition (basically whatever one I put first)

Cannot infer image mime type

In this case even if y < 100 is false it doesn't matter because x > 0 is true.

bruh I am legit studyingbthat at school I told you ik what it is but I am confused what you said is correct it should end but it's no an AND statement so if one is True it should end but that's not the case with what I am doing

It just repeats for me until the first condition is met

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to do. Could you provide some more details?

ok in a nutshell and OR is basically if one condition is True you it outputs true and in the case of my loop it should end it

However when I try to run my code it only tried to meet the first condition and completely ignored the second one and the OR (so for example the X would reach 0 but the y would already be at like 200) and I don't get what's the problem here and how to fix it

A while loop will continue to run as long as the boolean expression you pass to it is true.
