# Error in false statement

Hello

I write in SAGE the following

```
p=0+0*I
q=1/2+1/2*I
r=3/4+1/3*I
(real(p)==real(q))==false
```

and it returns "false", but it is true because 0 is not equal to 1/2. Why?

The operation

```
real(p) == real(q)
```

creates an "inequality". As you can check, the output prints as

```
>> real(p) == real(q)
0 == (1/2)
```

You know that the above is false but it is not automatically evaluated within Sage. If you want to force the evaluation you need to run

```
>>> bool(real(p) == real(q))
False
```
