Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0~q is the opposite of q

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if q says one thing then ~q (NOT q) says the complete opposite thing q says

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so ~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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Look at the argument below. Which of the following symbolic statements shows the setup used to find the validity of the argument?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"If Mario studies hard, then he gets good grades." translates to ...???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0p is just "Mario studies hard"

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do we incorporate the "he gets good grades" part?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"If Mario studies hard, then he gets good grades." translates to p > q

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now 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 ???

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh 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

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In general Original = contrapositive and inverse = converse

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 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
