In a conditional statement, it follows after “Then”; symbolically, it is the q.
the ending of an essay. A conclusion should clearly signal the reader that the essay is nearing its end. Two ways to end the essay include a relevant quote or unusual fact (or data).

a reasoned judgement based on a synthesis of empirical findings or factual statements corresponding to a specific circumstance. Example: The research and development programme of the Agricultural Science and Technology Institute is strong in its technical aspects but weak in its linkage with target groups (see "Finding" for the difference between a conclusion and a finding).
C&P page: 16,43 Definition: In the technical sense, which refers to arguments and their structure, the conclusion is a statement which is supposedly given support by a set of other statements (the premises). Comment: In real life, arguments frequently have several levels of sub- arguments-- that is, the overall conclusion will be supported by its set of premises, but any one of those premises may itself be supported by another set of statements, and so forth. Relative to the statement it supports, a statement is a premise; relative to those which it is supported by, it is a conclusion. Note that its being a conclusion says nothing about where a statement will occur in a given presentation-tion. The conclusion could come first, last, or in the middle-- or, for that matter, it could be repeated several times throughout the presentation. And by no means is the last sentence in the presentation necessarily its conclusion. When a speaker says, "And in conclusion, I want to thank you for being such a wonderful audience. I'm outa here." -- that's not part of his argument at all.
statement in an argument that the premises are purported to support or imply.
The result of a given conditional statement. (The "then" clause of a theorem.) This is also sometimes referred to as the result. Constructive Proof
