The "truth value" of a

statement is the

true or

false -ness of that statement. If you can

evaluate something to be

true or

false it has a

*truth value*.

Examples:

6 > 5 ... has a

* truth value* of:

true 6 > 7 ... has a

* truth value* of:

false
5 ... has no

*truth value* because it cannot be

evaluated any further.

You can also

obtain *truth values* for other kinds of statements such as

*"The sky is blue"*.
