The conditional statements contain conclusions. You may identify the conclusions as the phrases that follow the word "then".

The conditional statements also contain a hypothesis that may be identified as the phrase that follows the word "if".

Consider as example the following conditional statement: If `x + 3 < 4` , then `x < 1` .

You may identify the hypothesis as being the mathematical phrase placed after the word "if", `x + 3 < 4` , and the conclusion as being the inequality placed after the word "then", `x < 1` .
