Returns the truth value of (x == y) element-wise.

    x, y, incompatible_shape_error=True, name=None

NOTE: Equal supports broadcasting. More about broadcasting here

x = tf.constant([2, 4])
y = tf.constant(2)
tf.math.equal(x, y) ==> array([True, False])

x = tf.constant([2, 4])
y = tf.constant([2, 4])
tf.math.equal(x, y) ==> array([True,  True])


  • x: A Tensor. Must be one of the following types: bfloat16, half, float32, float64, uint8, int8, int16, int32, int64, complex64, quint8, qint8, qint32, string, bool, complex128.
  • y: A Tensor. Must have the same type as x.
  • incompatible_shape_error: An optional bool. Defaults to True.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A Tensor of type bool.
