# Evaluate Boolean Expression Problem

## Description

LeetCode Problem 1440.

Table Variables:

``````1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
+---------------+---------+
| Column Name   | Type    |
+---------------+---------+
| name          | varchar |
| value         | int     |
+---------------+---------+
name is the primary key for this table.
This table contains the stored variables and their values.

Table Expressions:

``````1

10
11
+---------------+---------+
| Column Name   | Type    |
+---------------+---------+
| left_operand  | varchar |
| operator      | enum    |
| right_operand | varchar |
+---------------+---------+
(left_operand, operator, right_operand) is the primary key for this table.
This table contains a boolean expression that should be evaluated.
operator is an enum that takes one of the values ('<', '>', '=')
The values of left_operand and right_operand are guaranteed to be in the Variables table.
``````

Write an SQL query to evaluate the boolean expressions in Expressions table.

Return the result table in any order.

The query result format is in the following example.

| name | value |
+------+-------+
| x    | 66    |
| y    | 77    |
+------+-------+

Expressions table:
+--------------+----------+---------------+
| left_operand | operator | right_operand |
+--------------+----------+---------------+
| x            | >        | y             |
| x            | <        | y             |
| x            | =        | y             |
| y            | >        | x             |
| y            | <        | x             |
| x            | =        | x             |
+--------------+----------+---------------+

Result table:
+--------------+----------+---------------+-------+
| left_operand | operator | right_operand | value |
+--------------+----------+---------------+-------+
| x            | >        | y             | false |
| x            | <        | y             | true  |
| x            | =        | y             | false |
| y            | >        | x             | true  |
| y            | <        | x             | false |
| x            | =        | x             | true  |
+--------------+----------+---------------+-------+
As shown, you need find the value of each boolean exprssion in the table using the variables table.
