A statement compares two expressions using relationship signs such as equal to \((=)\), not equal to \((\neq)\), greater than \((>)\), less than \((<)\), less than or equal to \((\leq)\), etc. When we deal with equations, we use the equal sign.

\(\begin{array}{lll}\text { Numeric statements: } & 7=5+2 ; \quad 100 \div 5<25 ; \quad-7<0 ; 6 \times 10-2+5=63 \\ \text { Algebraic statements: } & 7 x-5=9 ; \quad \frac{100 p}{3}+1 \geq 0 ; \quad 7 x^{2}+3 x-x-2 \leq 6\end{array}\)
