# Preposition Logic – Negation of a Statement

## Introduction

If p is a statement , then the negation of the statement is negative of the statement. Suppose p is “I am hungry” .

The negation of the statement is “not p” where not is the negation operator.

```p:  I am hungry.

not p : It is not the case that I am hungry or I am not hungry.
```

There is another way we can represent the negation operator.

$p$ is the simple preposition, then $\neg p$ is negation of the statement $p$ . We have to be careful about the negation operator.
