# BigInteger.GreaterThanOrEqual Operator

## Definition

Returns a value that indicates whether a specified value is greater than or equal to another specified value.

 GreaterThanOrEqual(Int64, BigInteger) Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit signed integer is greater than or equal to a BigInteger value. GreaterThanOrEqual(BigInteger, Int64) Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is greater than or equal to a 64-bit signed integer value. GreaterThanOrEqual(BigInteger, BigInteger) Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is greater than or equal to another BigInteger value. GreaterThanOrEqual(BigInteger, UInt64) Returns a value that indicates whether a BigInteger value is greater than or equal to a 64-bit unsigned integer value. GreaterThanOrEqual(UInt64, BigInteger) Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit unsigned integer is greater than or equal to a BigInteger value.

## GreaterThanOrEqual(Int64, BigInteger)

Source:
BigInteger.cs
Source:
BigInteger.cs
Source:
BigInteger.cs

Returns a value that indicates whether a 64-bit signed integer is greater than or equal to a BigInteger value.

``````public:
static bool operator >=(long left, System::Numerics::BigInteger right);``````
``public static bool operator >= (long left, System.Numerics.BigInteger right);``
``static member ( >= ) : int64 * System.Numerics.BigInteger -> bool``
``Public Shared Operator >= (left As Long, right As BigInteger) As Boolean``

#### Parameters

left
Int64

The first value to compare.

right
BigInteger

The second value to compare.

#### Returns

`true` if `left` is greater than `right`; otherwise, `false`.

### Remarks

The GreaterThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the greater than or equal to operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

``````BigInteger bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4);
long number = Int64.MaxValue;
if (number >= bigNumber) {
// Do something;
}
``````
``````let bigNumber = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4)
let number = Int64.MaxValue

if bigint number >= bigNumber then
// Do something;
``````
``````Dim bigNumber As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4)
Dim number As Long = Int64.MaxValue
If number >= bigNumber Then
' Do something
End If
``````

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.CompareTo(Int64) method instead. Some languages can also call the GreaterThanOrEqual(Int64, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

``````Dim bigNumber As BigInteger = BigInteger.Pow(Int32.MaxValue, 4)
Dim number As Long = Int64.MaxValue
If BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(number,bigNumber) Then
' Do something
End If
``````

If `left` is a Byte, Int16, Int32, SByte, UInt16, or UInt32 value, it is implicitly converted to an Int64 value when the operation is performed.

The equivalent method for this operator is BigInteger.CompareTo(Int64).

#### Parameters

left
BigInteger

The first value to compare.

right
Int64

The second value to compare.

#### Returns

`true` if `left` is greater than `right`; otherwise, `false`.

``static member ( >= ) : System.Numerics.BigInteger * System.Numerics.BigInteger -> bool``
``Public Shared Operator >= (left As BigInteger, right As BigInteger) As Boolean``

#### Parameters

left
BigInteger

The first value to compare.

right
BigInteger

The second value to compare.

#### Returns

`true` if `left` is greater than `right`; otherwise, `false`.

### Remarks

The GreaterThanOrEqual method defines the operation of the greater than or equal to operator for BigInteger values. It enables code such as the following:

``````BigInteger number1 = 945834723;
BigInteger number2 = 345145625;
BigInteger number3 = 945834724;
BigInteger number4 = 945834723;
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number2);             // Displays True
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number3);             // Displays False
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number4);             // Displays True

``````let number1 = 945834723I
let number2 = 345145625I
let number3 = 945834724I
let number4 = 945834723I
printfn \$"{number1 >= number2}" // Displays True
printfn \$"{number1 >= number3}" // Displays False
printfn \$"{number1 >= number4}" // Displays True
``````
``````Dim number1 As BigInteger = 945834723
Dim number2 As BigInteger = 345145625
Dim number3 As BigInteger = 945834724
Dim number4 As BigInteger = 945834723
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number2)                 ' Displays True
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number3)                 ' Displays False
Console.WriteLine(number1 >= number4)                 ' Displays True
``````

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the BigInteger.Compare method instead. Some languages can also call the GreaterThanOrEqual(BigInteger, BigInteger) method directly, as the following example shows.

``````Dim numberA As BigInteger = 945834723
Dim numberB As BigInteger = 345145625
Dim numberC As BigInteger = 945834724
Dim numberD As BigInteger = 945834723
Console.WriteLine( _
BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(numberA, numberB))    ' Displays True
Console.WriteLine( _
BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(numberA, numberC))    ' Displays False
Console.WriteLine( _
BigInteger.op_GreaterThanOrEqual(numberA, numberD))    ' Displays True
``````

The equivalent method for this operator is BigInteger.CompareTo(BigInteger).
