Mathematics, like ice cream and politics, is discussed in sentences. This is not always immediately apparent, because mathematical sentences may be presented in eccentric formats. for example,
$$ _{\frac{{ + 3}} {5}\quad and\quad \int_0^{2\pi } {\sin x\;dx} = 0}^2 $$
are sentences. We will not give a precise definition of sentence or statement (the terms will be used interchangeably), or of the adjectives true and false used in classifying sentences. But we will adopt the convention that some sentences are true, others are false, no sentence is simultaneously true and false, and some are neither true nor false.
