Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone help me define the axioms and theorems and what the differences are? I know axioms are suppose to be statements that are considered true based on logic (ex. x+y=y+x) but cannot be proven. Can someone explain why it can't be proven? Thanks
