contractual meaning[edit]

I have "represent" occurring for several times in an agreement in sentences like "customer represents that he has permission ..." and "customer represents that the removed parts are in good working order". I'm not sure if this meaning is shown here. Is it more like "state" or "confirm" or more like "demonstrate" or "show"? 90.190.225.121 00:02, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

In that case it means "to set forth clearly with a view to influencing opinion or action". It is more like declare. —Stephen 04:18, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
