The newly formed conditional statement by interchanging the "if" part and the "then" part of the original conditional statement, that is, the converse of the conditional statement "if x, then y" is "if y, then x."

The converse of a true statement may not hold true. The following statement is true: if x > 4, then |x| > 4. However, its converse, if |x| > 4, x > 4, may not be true, because x could also be less than -4 in this case.
