    I just recopied it and it is the same. Angie did the following proof in her logic class. Which step in the indirect proof did she do incorrectly? Prove: 8 is divisible by 4. Step 1: Assume that 8 is not divisible by four. Step 2: 8 is divisible by 4 Step 3: 8 is divisible by 4. Step 1 Steps 1 and 3 Step 3 Step 2

    clearly step 2 is incorrect after assuming 8 is not divisible by 4,one cannot conclude that 8 is divisible by 4
