# Exists ()

Exists[x,expr]

represents the statement that there exists a value of x for which expr is True.

Exists[x,cond,expr]

states that there exists an x satisfying the condition cond for which expr is True.

Exists[{x1,x2,},expr]

states that there exist values for all the for which expr is True.

# Details

• Exists[x,expr] can be entered as . The character can be entered as ex or \[Exists]. The variable is given as a subscript.
• Exists[x,cond,expr] can be entered as .
• In StandardForm, Exists[x,expr] is output as .
• Exists[x,cond,expr] is output as .
• Exists can be used in such functions as Reduce, Resolve, and FullSimplify.
• The condition cond is often used to specify the domain of a variable, as in xIntegers.
• Exists[x,cond,expr] is equivalent to Exists[x,cond&&expr].
• Exists[{x1,x2,},] is equivalent to .
• The value of in Exists[x,expr] is taken to be localized, as in Block.

## Basic Examples(1)

This states that there exists a positive solution to the equation :

 In[1]:=
 Out[1]=

Use Resolve to get a condition on real parameters for which the statement is true:

 In[2]:=
 Out[2]=

Reduce gives the condition in a solved form:

 In[3]:=
 Out[3]=
