    thanks also one more thing i think an arguement with a false premise and a true conclusion is not valid since the conclusion does not follow from the premise so you can have the following two valid arguements true premise+true conclusion false premise+false conclusion the arguement is sound if the argument is of the following form: true premise+true conclusion
