A statement is, as far as BASIC is concerned, a keyword that can be executed in run-time which doesn't return any value. It can contain several arguments or no arguments at all.

The arguments in a statement are usually not enclosed with paranteses. When a graphical x-coordinate and y-coordinate is to be specified they are enclosed with paranteses though.


Example 1: Demonstrates how x- and y-coordinates are enclosed with paranteses (in graphics).

SCREEN 13 x = 160 y = 100 PSET (x, y), 15

Example 2: Demonstrates how row- and column-coordinates are not enclosed with paranteses (in text).

row = 12 column = 40 LOCATE row, column PRINT "X"
