alright so ..these really confuse me please help “If I do not quit, then I am not giving up. If I am not giving up, then I am not failing. Therefore, If I do not quit, then I am not failing.” This is an example of which property or law?

    most syllogisms come in this form: 1. All men are mortal 2. Socrates is a man 3. Socrates is mortal

    rename it to something generic “If I do not quit (-q), then I am not giving up.(-g) \[-q \implies -g\] If I am not giving up,(-g) then I am not failing. (-f) \[-g \implies -f\] Therefore, If I do not quit, (-q) then I am not failing.” (-f) \[-q \implies -f\] transitive law? This is an example of which property or law?

    The Law of Syllogism ( also called the Law of Transitivity ) states: if p=>q and q=>r are both true, then p=>r is true. - from some internet site
