## Bertrand-Chebyshev Theorem: Also known as

The **Bertrand-Chebyshev Theorem** is also known as **Bertrand's Postulate** or **Bertrand's Conjecture**.

Some sources give this as **Chebyshev's theorem (in number theory)** to distinguish it from a theorem in statistics.

This article, or a section of it, needs explaining.In particular: Replace the above with something more precise, and a link, when we have established what theorem that is.You can help $\mathsf{Pr} \infty \mathsf{fWiki}$ by explaining it.To discuss this page in more detail, feel free to use the talk page.When this work has been completed, you may remove this instance of `{{Explain}}` from the code. |
