Mathematics consists of propositions of the form: P implies Q, but you never ask whether P is true.

~Bertrand Russell

This is the logic of mathematics that If you do wrong and get wrong then it is the right statement.

More simply If you pick something wrong and in the conclusion get something wrong then this thing is right.

I know it’s a little bit difficult to understand, actually, I learn it today in my Mathematical Thinking class. So, I thought it seems interesting so why don’t I share this with my friend.

The logic behind this is that you pick something wrong and get something wrong there is the process in between this and that which is actually true so the whole statement is true.

For example, you want to make a pot from clay but you take cement or another type of soil you do the same process of making a pot but with the wrong material.

So the beginning was wrong but the process was right and what in the end you got the wrong result which is quite clear.

This is proof that false statements can imply true statements.

Isn’t it Surprising, tell me in the comment box below? I know it’s a bit tricky. LOL Stay Blessed and think like Mathematicians. ✌

Much Love,
