Given a scenario, write EL code that uses the following operators: aritmetic operators, relational operators, and logical operators.

There are the arithmetic operators here: '+', '-', '*', '/', '%'. You can also use the following for the '/' (division) and '%' (remainder or modulo) operators: div and mod. You can see examples of these being used below:

6 + 7 = ${6+7}<br>
8 x 9 = ${8*9}<br>


The relational operators are shown below:

Here are some basic comparisons:

Is 1 less than 2? ${1<2} <br>
Does 5 equal 5? ${5==5} <br>
Is 6 greater than 7? ${6 gt 7}<br>


The logical operators are the same as the Java Programming Language, but they also have their textual equivalents within the EL.

The empty operator allows you to test the following:

You use the operator in the following way:

If any of the above conditions are met, then the operator returns true.
