is it posible to use operators with _context

good afternoon,
I was wondering if it is posible to use operators like OR/AND as follow in

 if (_context.User.Any(ac => ac.Id.Equals(23) && ac.Active.Equals(1)))

Open in new window

or what is the right way of doing something similar to that.

I appreciate your help thanks.

I think User is not an IEnumerable. You cannot use the method Any on it.

Maybe I should've written what I was trying to accomplish, I'm trying to check if a specific user is active.
My last comment was just a thought I had when reading your code and I forgot to actually answer the question.
You can use boolean operators in Are you getting an error when you use them?

Im new to MVC, so im not sure if what I was doing was posible, this is the error I get System.ArgumentException: 'DbComparisonExpression requires arguments with comparable types.'
If it's typical code, I'm assuming "Active" on the database is actually a bit flag.  In which case even though it's 0 or 1 on the db, it maps to true / false as a bool on the data context.

if (_context.User.Any(ac => ac.Id == 23 && ac.Active == true))
