Boolean is a data type where the data only has two possible variables: true or false.
In terms of computer science, Boolean is an identification classifier for working out logical truth values and algebraic variables.
Named after George Boole, an English mathematician and philosopher who created the system in the mid nineteenth century. Boole worked in the fields of algebraic logic and differential equations and is the author of the book, The Laws of Thought.
What is a Boolean operator?
Boolean deals with conditional statements that see if a programmer-specified condition is true or false. It uses operators, which is an object that is capable of manipulating a value, such as AND, OR, NIT, NOR, NAND, and XOR. This is known as a Boolean operator.
For example, ‘CBR contains free information and news articles.’ So if you applied the Boolean of AND along with the values Free and News, the result would come back as True.
In terms of binary values, Boolean works out whether a circuit states is charged or not.
