Verifying the TrueCrypt hashes

Last Modified: 2016-10-08
We read in a TrueCrypt link to verifying the TrueCrypt v7.1a Files hash to make sure that if we downloaded the correct or legit version of the apps.  The link states, and the purpose of our question, that  “Many sites attempt to assert the authenticity of the files they offer by posting their cryptographic hash values”.  We’ve read the link and its reference links within, but can’t quite grasp the process of verifying TrueCrypt hash.  So, as always, turning to EE; how do we do this process of “verifying”?
