# Math Help - What is the converse of this?

1. ## What is the converse of this?

can someone explain to me what does converse mean and what is the converse of the following statement:

The sum of two consecutive odd numbers is a multiple of 4.

2. ## Re: What is the converse of this?

The converse of $P \rightarrow Q$ is $Q \rightarrow P$

So the converse of

"The sum of two consecutive odd numbers is a multiple of 4." is

"A multiple of 4 is the sum of two consecutive odd numbers"

P = n is the sum of two consecutive odd numbers

Q = n is a multiple of 4
