# How To Identify a Trivial Boolean Expression - Comprehensive Guide

In this article, we’ll learn how to identify a trivial Boolean expression and what actions should be taken afterwards. We will start by defining a Boolean expression and discuss its parts and operations. After that, we’ll see what a trivial Boolean expression is and how to identify it.

## What is a Boolean Expression?

A Boolean expression is an expression that evaluates to either true or false. It is formed by combining relational operators, logical operators and boolean variables. A boolean expression can be written in programming languages such as C, Java, JavaScript and many others.

### Relational Operators

Relational operators are used to compare two values and the result is a boolean value (true/false). They are:

• “>” (greater than)
• “<” (less than)
• “>=” (greater than or equal to)
• “<=” (less than or equal to)
• “==” (equal to)
• “!=” (not equal to)

### Logical Operators

Logical operators are used to combine two or more boolean expressions and the result is a single boolean expression. They are:

• “&&” (and)
• “||” (or)
• “!” (not)

### Boolean Variables

Boolean variables are variables whose values can be either true or false. They are used in boolean expressions to represent true/false relationships.

## What is a Trivial Boolean Expression?

A trivial Boolean expression is an expression that evaluates to always true or always false and contains no variables. They are usually formed by logical and relational operators only.

## How To Identify a Trivial Boolean Expression

To identify a trivial Boolean expression, we need to inspect all the operators it contains. All the operators should be of the same type, either relational or logical.

The expression should not contain any Boolean variables. This helps to determine that the expression will be always true or false.

### Examples

!(true && true) = false - This expression is a trivial Boolean expression because it contains only logical operators and no Boolean variables.

5 >= 5 = true - This expression is also a trivial Boolean expression because it contains only a relational operator and no Boolean variables.
