# GTE

The GTE function is an operator that stands for "greater than or equal to". It compares two values and returns TRUE if the first value is greater than or equal to the second value, and FALSE if it is not. It is commonly used in conjunction with other operators and functions to evaluate data.

## Usage

Use the `GTE` formula with the syntax shown below, it has 2 required parameters:

Parameters:
1. value1 (required):
The first value to compare.
2. value2 (required):
The second value to compare.

## Examples

Here are a few example use cases that explain how to use the `GTE` formula in Google Sheets.

### Filtering Data

Using GTE allows you to filter data based on a certain threshold, such as filtering all sales data that is greater than or equal to \$1000.

### Conditional Formatting

You can use GTE with conditional formatting to highlight cells that meet certain criteria, such as highlighting all cells with a value greater than or equal to 90.

### Calculating Percentages

GTE can be used along with other operators and functions to calculate percentages, such as finding the percentage of sales that are greater than or equal to \$1000.

## Common Mistakes

`GTE` not working? Here are some common mistakes people make when using the `GTE` Google Sheets Formula:

### Incorrect order of values

The values in the formula should be entered in the order that you want to compare them. If you enter them in the wrong order, you will get an incorrect result. Double-check that you have entered the values in the correct order.

### Not using numerical values

The GTE formula is used to compare numerical values. If you try to compare non-numerical values, you will get an error. Make sure that the values you are comparing are numbers.

### Using the wrong comparison operator

The GTE formula is used to check if one value is greater than or equal to another value. If you want to check if one value is less than or equal to another value, you should use the LTE formula instead. Double-check that you are using the correct comparison operator.

### Not using parentheses

When using the GTE formula with more than one comparison, you need to use parentheses to group the comparisons correctly. If you do not use parentheses, you may get an incorrect result. Make sure that you use parentheses to group the comparisons correctly.

### Using incorrect syntax

The GTE formula takes two values as inputs, separated by a comma. Make sure that you have entered the values correctly and that you have not missed any commas or other characters in the formula.

The following functions are similar to `GTE` or are often used with it in a formula:

• `EQ`

The `EQ` formula is a comparison operator that returns TRUE if the two provided values are equal and FALSE otherwise. This formula is commonly used in conditional statements and logical expressions.

• `IF`

The `IF` formula is a logical function used to test a condition and return one value if the condition is true and another value if the condition is false. It is commonly used to create conditional statements and perform calculations based on certain conditions.

• `AND`

The `AND` function in Google Sheets is a logical function that returns TRUE if all of the logical expressions in the argument are TRUE, and FALSE if any of the logical expressions are FALSE. It can be used to test multiple conditions and evaluate whether they are all true or not.
