Q.E.D.

An initialism of quod erat demonstratum (Latin for "what was to be demonstrated"), formally used at the conclusion of mathematical or philosophical proofs. In everyday speech and writing, it is used to emphasize that something proves a particular point or opinion. If the company's profits have gone up while their operating costs have gone down, then they have the money to pay their employees a better wage, Q.E.D.
