The larger (`>`

) operator returns true if its left operand is greater than its right operand. It accepts numeric, date, and Boolean operands.

```
number > number
Boolean > Boolean
date > date
larger(number, number)
larger(Boolean, Boolean)
larger(date, date)
```

You can also use the function version, `larger()`

.

## Example Formulas

```
2 > 1 // Output: true
42 > 50 // Output: false
// Boolean values equate to 1 (true) and 0 (false).
true > false // Output: true
true > true // Output: false
// For dates, "less than" equates to "before".
now() > dateSubtract(now(), 1, "days") // Output: true
```

**Good to know: **When comparing dates, “larger” = “later”.

**Good to know: **The larger (`>`

) operator *cannot *be chained in a Notion formula. A formula like `3 > 2 > 1`

won’t work. Use the and operator to get around this – e.g. 3` `

>` 2 and 2 > 1`

.

## Example Database

This example database records the power levels of two fighters at different stages. The **Stronger** formula outputs a sentence stating who the stronger fighter is at that time.

### “Stronger” Property Formula

```
((prop("Goku") > prop("Vegeta")) ? "Goku is stronger" : "Vegeta is stronger") + " during " + prop("Saga") + "."
```

This formula uses the conditional operators `?`

and `:`

to form an if-then statement. The output is then combined with strings and the output of the **Saga **property via the add (`+`

) operator (which can concatenate strings).
