## Question

Define inverse in the sense of logic (i.e., the inverse of ”p implies q” is ” p implies q”).

Explain that the inverse of a statement is logically equivalent to the converse of the original statement.

If the phrase ”inverse theorem” is in current usage, then define it within this entry also. Give at least two examples. For reasons of parallelism, title the entry as ”inverse theorem”.

If the phrase ”inverse theorem” is not in current usage, then instead give at least one concrete example of a statement and its inverse.
