In HTML <br> and <br/> are same.

In some codes I noticed that <br> tag is used to create single line break but in some codes <br/> is used to create single line break, is there any diiffernce in them or they are similar tags used for same purpose.

This is same tag, but in html5 we dont need to add "/" on some tags what dont have closening tag. Best is to check here for each tag, select your tag and see how thay use tag in code Here is more about this topic Tags like <br> and <hr> dont need "/" for sure

Yes they both are same but i think it's good practice to use <br> for line break instead of <br/>
