# numpy.logical_or¶

`numpy.``logical_or`(x1, x2, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'logical_or'>

Compute the truth value of x1 OR x2 element-wise.

Parameters: x1, x2 : array_like Logical OR is applied to the elements of x1 and x2. They have to be of the same shape. out : ndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and None, optional A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs. where : array_like, optional Values of True indicate to calculate the ufunc at that position, values of False indicate to leave the value in the output alone. **kwargs For other keyword-only arguments, see the ufunc docs. y : ndarray or bool Boolean result with the same shape as x1 and x2 of the logical OR operation on elements of x1 and x2. This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.

Examples

```>>> np.logical_or(True, False)
True
>>> np.logical_or([True, False], [False, False])
array([ True, False])
```
```>>> x = np.arange(5)
>>> np.logical_or(x < 1, x > 3)
array([ True, False, False, False,  True])
```
