Greater Than or Equal To in Google Sheets

My topic for this tutorial will be the “greater than or equal to” operator offered by Google Sheets and how to use it.

Hi there! Welcome to TeqTog! TeqTog is where you can have access to useful information regarding Google Sheets.

What is the Greater than or Equal to?

First and foremost, l will explain what the “Greater Than or Equal To” feature is.

It is actually an operator in Google Sheets; which helps with your calculations and analysis. If you want to know more about operators and how they function in Google Sheet; TeqTog has a lot of articles about them and you can check them out. 

Operators in Google Sheets and it’s Types

Operators are features which determine the type of calculation you wish to execute on your values. There are essentially four kinds operators found in a spreadsheet program; which are:

  1. Text Concatenation Operators
  2. Formula Operators
  3. Arithmetic Operators
  4. Comparison Operators

To learn more about arithmetic and others operators and how to do math in Google Sheets; you can check out our Math in Google Sheets tutorial article.

The operator that I am discussing about in this article falls in the comparison operator category.

Operator NameOperator TypeSymbolCondition of the Operator
Greater Than or Equal ToComparison Operator>=Is greater than or equal to the value

Others Comparison Operators

Here is the six mathematical comparison operators and symbols in Google Sheets to use.

We have published tutorials articles just like this one, on, “Equal to in Google Sheets”, “Not Equal to in Google Sheets”, “Less than in Google Sheets”, “Greater than in Google Sheets” and “Less than or Equal to in Google Sheets”, you may love to check out them to know more.

How to use the Greater than or Equal to Feature

Similar to my earlier examples, I will present two sets of values in two columns: Set A and Set B. Within these values, I want to verify which values in column A is greater than, or, equal to the values in Column B.

How to use the Greater than or Equal to Feature

Just like the other operators in Google Sheets, you can either use the “>=” operator or the “GTE” function in place of another, to make the same comparison. That’s why I have two columns to show you how you can use both the operator and the “GTE” function.

Formula for the Greater Than or Equal To “>=” Operator

1. In column C, I will type in the formula for the operator to draw the comparisons between Set A and Set B.

The syntax for the “>=” operator will be:

=IF(A2>=B2, “Yes”, “No”)

By applying this formula, I can check two things: if the value in A2 is greater than the value in B2 and, if A2 is equal to the value in B2. My spreadsheets will return “Yes” if my logical conditions are met and “No” if they are not met.

Formula for the Greater Than or Equal To “>=” Operator

2. I will get the results by pressing “Enter” and, use “auto-fill” to get the same results for the rest of the column.

Formula for the “GTE” Function

Now, the syntax for the “GTE” function will be:

=GTE(value 1, value 2)

and then

=IF(GTE (A2,B2), “Yes”, “No”)

The “GTE” function will confirm whether the value in A2 is GREATER THAN OR EQUAL TO (GTE) the value in B2.

1. I will give my formula for the GTE function in the “GTE Formula” column.

2. Press “Enter” and apply the suggested “auto-fill” option.  

Greater Than or Equal To in Google Sheets

And that, ends up my article on, how you can use the less than or equal to operator in Google Sheets.  

I hope this tutorial helped you to understand ‘greater than or equal to’ in Google Sheets better way. Best of luck!
