# How to add logic in Python

1 min

In Python, you can add logic using control statements like `if`, `else`, and `elif`.

Here's a simple example of an `if` statement:

``````x = 10
if x > 5:
print("x is greater than 5")
``````

The `if` statement checks whether the value of `x` is greater than 5, and if it is, it prints "x is greater than 5".

Here's an example of an `if`-`else` statement:

``````x = 3
if x > 5:
print("x is greater than 5")
else:
print("x is not greater than 5")
``````

The `else` clause runs if the `if` statement's condition is not met.

You can also use `elif` to check multiple conditions:

``````x = 3
if x > 5:
print("x is greater than 5")
elif x == 3:
print("x is equal to 3")
else:
print("x is less than 3")
``````

In this example, `elif` checks if `x` is equal to 3, and runs the corresponding block if the condition is met.

Additionally, you can use loops like `for` and `while` to repeat actions until a certain condition is met. These control statements allow you to add logic and automate tasks in your Python code.
