    Comparision.

    Let's take two real numbers a and b, such that a>0 , b>0.


    How can we compare these two numbers without the use of any operator in a programming language ??

    More context needed. Do you mean how do you tell is a>b, a=b or a<b without using the comparison operators > = <?

    Then what are you allowed to use?
