    Contrapositive is when they add not and reverse the statement.

    Inverse: the inverse of a statement is the statement in the same order with both parts negated Example: Statement-If you win a case, this school is great Inverse-If you do NOT win a case, this school is NOT great Converse: the converse of a statement is the statement in the opposite order Example: Statement-If you win a case, this school is great Converse- If this school is great, then you win a case Contrapositive: the contrapositive of a statement is the statement in the opposite order with both parts negated Example-If you win a case, this school is great Contrapositive-If this school is NOT great, then you will NOT win a case.
