While writing a program we frequently need to determine the equality of variables in relation to other variables. This is done using an equality operator. The most basic equality operator is the == operator. This operator does everything it can to determine if two variables are equal, even if they are not of the same type.

For example, assume:

let foo = 42;
let bar = 42;
let baz = "42";
let qux = "life";

foo == bar will evaluate to true and baz == qux will evaluate to false, as one would expect. However, foo == baz will also evaluate to true despite foo and baz being different types. Behind the scenes the == equality operator attempts to force its operands to the same type before determining their equality. This is in contrast to the === equality operator.

The === equality operator determines that two variables are equal if they are of the same type and have the same value. With the same assumptions as before, this means that foo === bar will still evaluate to true, but foo === baz will now evaluate to false. baz === qux will still evaluate to false.

Use the `==` and `===` operator to compare the values of `str1` and `str2`.
let str1 = "hello"; let str2 = "HELLO"; let bool1 = true; let bool2 = 1; // compare using == let stringResult1 = let boolResult1 = // compare using === let stringResult1 = let boolResult2 =
