## davian 3 years ago 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?

1. ktklown

inductive reasoning

2. mitosuki

I think it is a property.

3. davian

thats not a choice the choices are law of syllogism addition property symmeteric property or law of detachment

4. Truman

syllogism

5. Truman

6. ktklown

do you have a book or something you're supposed to be studying from? where are these questions from?

7. Truman

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

8. amistre64

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?

Yeah I would say the law of syllogism kind of like this pic http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs29/i/2008/163/0/0/Law_of_Syllogism_by_Kirbychan.jpg

10. amistre64

if a=b and b=c; then a=c; sounds transitional to me

11. Truman

go with amistre64, i'm incorrect.

12. amistre64

lol, mito one upped me

13. amistre64

id have to look up the defs of your options to see which matches

14. ktklown

or maybe the asker could look them up and see which definition matches

15. ktklown

i mean at that point you're not "helping" you're just straight up doing the work for him

16. davian

i did look it up im just seeing what other people think i think its syllogism

17. mitosuki

lol it seems as though law of syllogism would work, cause the others don't seem right.

18. davian

thanks bro ^^

19. amistre64

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

20. amistre64

21. mitosuki
