public class Main {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    BiPredicate<Integer, Integer> bi = (x, y) -> x > y;
    BiPredicate<Integer, Integer> eq = (x, y) -> x -2 > y;
    System.out.println(bi.test(2, 3));
    System.out.println(bi.and(eq).test(2, 3));
    System.out.println(bi.and(eq).test(8, 3));
