Often referred to as a numerical equation, a numerical statement is a mathematical phrase or problem made up entirely of numerical characters. All levels of numerical statements present themselves daily in our lives.

Significance

Although sometimes referred to as simple math problems and calculations, a numerical statement is the basic equation. 2 + 2 = 4 is one of the most basic numerical statements.

Features

The beauty of a numerical statement is that it can take on many different forms. It can be presented as a long division equation or a simple, elementary school-level math problem. In every case, though, it remains a series of numerical characters meant to be solved.

Identification

Numerical statements and equations are unique in that they are measured and expressed solely in numbers – no letters are involved. The only exception would be an algebraic statement in which you are solving for a letter.
