~q is the opposite of q

So if q says one thing then ~q (NOT q) says the complete opposite thing q says

so ~q is like saying Jose is NOT not winning the race ...a bit confusing, but the two "not"s cancel giving us ~q: Jose is winning the race

Look at the argument below. Which of the following symbolic statements shows the setup used to find the validity of the argument? If Mario studies hard, then he gets good grades. Mario got good grades. Therefore, Mario studied hard. p: Mario studies hard. q: Mario gets good grades

a.) [(p → q) ∧ ~q] .'.p b.)[(p → q) → q] ∴ p c.)[(p → q) ∧ q] ∴ q d.) [(p → q) ∧ q] ∴ p

"If Mario studies hard, then he gets good grades." translates to ...???

p is just "Mario studies hard"

how do we incorporate the "he gets good grades" part?

"If Mario studies hard, then he gets good grades." translates to p > q
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now tack on the statement "Mario got good grades" So what does "If Mario studies hard, then he gets good grades. Mario got good grades. " translate to ???
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
~q means he did NOT get good grades, but it clearly says he did

oh ok, thanks, and this will be the last one i promise,: Which of the following is the equivalent of the inverse statement? a.) the negation of the statement.. b.) the converse of the statement.... c.)the contrapositive of the statement... d.)the conditional statement
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
In general Original = contrapositive and inverse = converse
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the inverse of p > q is ~p > ~q  that's equivalent to ~~q > ~~p which is the same as q > p but this is the converse So this shows that the inverse and the converse represent the same thing
