## If Statement

To compare a variable to a value, use an if statement. Example of checking if a variable called age is at least 100:
```if (age >= 100) {
console.log(`you are very old`)
}
```
The `age >= 100` is a condition. The `>=` is a comparison operator. For the complete list of comparison operators, refer to the conditional logic page.
