Thereof, what are if/then statements?

A conditional **statement** (also called an **If**-**Then Statement**) is a **statement** with a hypothesis followed by a conclusion. The hypothesis is the first, or “**if**,” part of a conditional **statement**. The conclusion is the second, or “**then**,” part of a conditional **statement**. The conclusion is the result of a hypothesis.

Additionally, when a condition in an IF THEN statement is true? A **conditional statement** is false **if** hypothesis is **true** and the conclusion is false. The example above would be false **if** it said "**if** you get good grades **then** you will not get into a good college". **If** we re-arrange a **conditional statement** or change parts of it **then** we have what is called a related **conditional**.

Also know, what is another name for an IF THEN statement?

Another name for an if-then statement is a conditional statement. Every conditional has two parts. The part following if is the **hypothesis** and the part following then is the **conclusion**.

How do we write statement in if/then form?

SOLUTION: To **write** these **statements in if**-**then form**, identify the hypothesis and conclusion. The word **if** is not part of the hypothesis. The word **then** is not part of the conclusion. **If** points are collinear, **then** they lie on the same line.
