## anonymous 5 years ago Select the valid conjecture by the Law of Syllogism. Given: If a figure is a square, then the figure is a rectangle. If a figure is a rectangle, then it is a parallelogram. a.If a figure is a parallelogram, then it is a square. b.If a figure is a square, then it is a parallelogram. c.If a figure is a parallelogram, then it is a rectangle. d.If a figure is a rectangle, then it is a square.

If you write this with arrows, things will make more sense. For example, here $Square\rightarrow Rectangle$ and $Rectangle\rightarrow Parallelogram$ The law of syllogism says if $A\rightarrow B$ and $B\rightarrow C$ then $A\rightarrow C$ So here, we deduce that $Square \rightarrow Parallelogram$
