Confused about bool functions

  1. Feb 27, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I'm given the member function:

    bool Product::is_better_than(Product b) const
    if(price==0) return true;
    if (b.price price==0) return false;
    return score/price>b.score/b.price;

    I'm really confused about the last line "return score/price>b.score/b.price;". Does it mean, return true if ">" holds and return false if "<" doesn't hold?

    Yes. You can think of all comparisons as functions that return true or false depending on whether the condition is satisfied.
